CLOQUET, Minn. -

There is a new piece of playground equipment in Cloquet that is the first of its kind in the Northland.

This is the first piece of playground equipment where children in wheelchairs can wheel up and on to the glider without adults taking them out of their chairs.

It can hold up to 14 students at one time and it was purchased in memory of Armand Garza, a former student who passed away last August from Muscular Dystrophy.

Catherine Schroeder, a teacher at Churchill Elementary, said "There is very few places that they can go with friends onto the equipment without adult help so now they can go at anytime with their peers and enjoy the ride."

This aeroglider swing was made possible through donations from organizations, individuals and companies in the Cloquet and Duluth area.
