Rolling Hornets vs. Upward Stars 17's in Wheelchair Basketball Exhibition!

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 5:37:30 PM

We  have a unique opportunity coming up that I hope you and your family can be a part of.  We will be hosting an exhibition game involving the Rolling Hornets out of Charlotte.  They are a wheelchair basketball team involving children and adults who have physical disabilities yet pursue active, healthy lifestyles in adaptive sports.  They will play a game involving two teams from the Rolling Hornets, and then one of our Upward Stars Basketball Teams (11th Grade - Dawkins) will compete against them as well.

 

We are doing this exhibition game hoping to bring awareness to the sport, support these amazing athletes, and  gauge interest for a wheelchair youth team here locally. We would love nothing more than to support and love these athletes and their families.

 

We hope you can make it to this game. There will be a $3 gate fee but 100% of proceeds will go back to Abilities of Unlimited of the Carolinas. Please contact Dipali Britton if you have any questions at dbritton@upward.org.

The game will played on Sunday, March 29th at 4 p.m.
