    Mia Ahner of Jasper, 10, left, helped guide Abi Byrd of Huntingburg, 7, around the walking path outside of Cabby O’Neill Gymnasium in Jasper during a disabilities awareness program sponsored by Generations AngelWorx on Monday morning. Nearly 40 children attending the Tri-County YMCA’s summer day camp in Jasper participated in the program, where they were split into groups and each child was assigned a disability. As Abi’s guide, Mia pointed out cracks and bumps in the sidewalk while Abi was blindfolded to simulate a vision impairment. Dave Weatherwax/The Herald

    A balloon flew out of the mouth of Maddy Burgan of Dubois, 6, as she attempted to blow it up and tie it with the use of only one arm Monday morning at Cabby O’Neill Gymnasium in Jasper. The task was part of a disabilities awareness program put on by Generations AngelWorx for the nearly 40 children attending the Tri-County YMCA's summer day camp in Jasper. The children were split into groups and each child was assigned a disability. Maddy had to attempt the balloon task while wearing a shirt with one sleeve pinned to the collar to prevent her from using that arm. Dave Weatherwax/The Herald
