ZEELAND, Mich. (WOOD) — A video of a blind student making a basket during a school basketball game in Michigan has gone viral.
The game was part of the unified sports programming for special education students at Zeeland Public Schools.
The video shows a student who is blind taking the shot and sinking the basket, making the crowd go wild as they cheered her on.
The student is part of the school’s zLinks program, a peer-based initiative to integrate students with special needs.
“zLinks is an absolute point of pride in our system,” Superintendent Brandi-Lyn Mendham said in a statement. “We are grateful for the way this program has impacted our students across the district as it represents the best of what Zeeland has to offer: compassion, opportunities, and relationships.”
