INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — There’s a different racing tradition in town, and it’s something you’ve never seen before.

Community Rehab Hospital hosted a wheelchair race.

Patients and staff competed in their own version of the Indy 500. Patients even decorated their wheelchairs to celebrate.

Of course, each winner got a trophy, flowers and a glass of milk.

It’s the third year for this race at the hospital.
