The Impact of Sportable

"My physical therapist dared me to check out wheelchair basketball with Sportable. I didn’t want to go, but after the first practice, I was hooked. I have played ever since and I love it! Not only have I gotten  to play basketball, but I have been handcycling, rock climbing, played rugby, raced the Monument Ave 10K, and am  about to compete in my first triathlon.”
