Día de los Muertos is a day of celebration that combines traditions from ancient Aztec, Spanish and Mexican cultures. Each year on this day, we not only honor the passing of souls, but celebrate the part of the human experience that unites us all - death.
2023 DIA on Día marks the 10th Anniversary of the Día de los Muertos concert to benefit Easterseals Lonestar and help those with disabilities live more independent lives. On this day of Diversity & Inclusion Awareness, we strive to promote the INCLUSION of all throughout our city.
People with disabilities and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) are often not presented with the same opportunities in our society. Instead of being valued for the different attributes they bring, they can be perceived as “others” and excluded.
DIA on Día this year will raise money to support the renovation of Easterseals Vaughn House, a facility in the heart of South Austin - 78704.
How does Easterseals Lonestar's Vaughn House Serve People with Disabilities?
The Fit Ability Program, a completely accessible gym for people with disabilities, serves the community with a Personal Trainer who specializes in helping those in wheelchairs and other physical disabilities work with the wheelchair specific workout equipment to work with clients to create individualized exercise plans.
The goal of the Fit Ability program is for people with physical disabilities to live as healthy of a life as possible through physical fitness, recreation, and community, to achieve their full potential.
