LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A group of remarkable women gathered Satuday at the Weber Center.
The third annual Riverfront's Miss RemarkAble pageant was held this afternoon.
The pageant gives women with disabilities a chance to build life skills and self-confidence through educational sessions and on-stage pageant experience.
At the end of the event, one of the 10 participants is crowned Miss Remarkable.
Organizers said the event is a way for the community to see people in a different light.
"Everybody has great abilities that they can showcase, and that’s what this is all about,” said Nate Hundt, marking and communications director for Riverfront Inc. “It's about educating the community about inclusion, about everybody's abilities, and the importance of accepting people for who they are."
Sara Schumacher was crowned this year's Miss RemarkAble.
