Hundreds of kids and their families gathered for the Munsey Easter Egg Hunt this morning inside the East Tennessee State University Mini Dome.
This year, Munsey United Methodist Church partnered with AdaptoPlay to allow children with disabilities to experience the hunt.
Organizers created an adaptive egg hunt, with eggs tied to balloons and magnets, making it easier for children to pick up.
“For him to come out and experience what a true Easter event with the community is priceless for families,” said parent Lauren McInturff, watching her son, Brody, pick up eggs. “It’s at his own pace. He doesn’t have to be rushed. He’s not worried about somebody else swiping an egg from him and he’s filled up two bags so far so he’s super excited.”
For many parents, they say this was the first time their children were able to participate in a hunt.
