Description

Welcome to the 2nd Annual "Wheel 2 Win" Wheelchair Basketball Tournament where you can experience the game of basketball from a WHEELCHAIR! Have you ever seen that moving commercial where able-bodied people get in wheelchairs and play basketball with their friend who is a wheelchair user?!

For the second year in a row, the United Spinal Metro DC Chapter, in partnership with Georgetown University's Special Masters Program and MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital are hosting their annual wheelchair basketball fundraiser and making this a reality!

"Wheel 2 Win" is a 3v3 wheelchair basketball tournament that will be taking place at Georgetown's Yates Field House on Sunday, April 7th. This will be a 20 team tournament with a $200 entry fee per team. Each team will consist of a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 5. Before the start of the tournament there will be an hour when the players will be taught the fundamentals and rules of wheelchair basketball from MedStar's Wheelchair Basketball Team - The NRH Punishers!

Not interested in competing in the tournament? No problem! We encourage spectators to stop by and enjoy the event. We will be having a bake sale, vendors, and a raffle drawing with great prizes that all benefit the participating organizations. Come by to support and learn more about the positive impact of adaptive sports!

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 Metro DC 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.
