After visiting all of the stations, participants will be entered into a raffle.

Representatives of the state Department of Human Services Division of Rehabilitation Services, Northwestern Illinois Center for Independent Living, Serve Illinois, the Whiteside County Health Department and campus organizations will be on hand.
