Rutgers University - Wheelchair Basketball Exhibition Print E-mail

On Friday, October 13, 2017 the Wheelchair Sports Federation was invited to attend a fundraiser at Rutgers University in New Jersey. This event was designed to bring awareness to the many struggles and challenges that the disabled face on a daily basis and how they are overcome. The Brooklyn Nets Wheelchair Basketball Team provided extra wheelchairs and challenged both the faculty and students to a game of wheelchair basketball.
We would like to thank Nychey Michel Coordinator from the office of Disability Service and Paul (Director of Cook-Douglass Recreation Center), not only for their invitation and hospitality, but their generous donation as well.
