Gallaudet alumni and staff to participate in 'Wheel 2 Win - 3 v 3 Wheelchair Basketball Tournament' on February 25, 2018

A team composed of Gallaudet staff and alumni will participate in the 'Wheel 2 Win - 3 v 3 Wheelchair Basketball Tournament' on February 25, 2018, at Georgetown University's Yates Field House.

[The goal of this fundraiser is to bring inclusiveness by having able-bodied individuals compete in sports wheelchairs; this will provide an eye-opening experience, highlighting just some of the challenges that their disabled counterparts face day-to-day. All proceeds from the tournament will go to the local United Spinal chapter and then reinvested in the disability community for individuals with spinal cord injuries and diseases (SCI/D) providing them with the necessary services and mobility equipment so that they may also lead successful and independent lives.]
