Wheelchair basketball tournament happening today

Posted: Updated:

If you're looking for something fun to do today, head out on to the Citadel for the Second Annual Shots with a Spin. It is a wheelchair basketball tournament hosted by the MUSC Physical Therapy Class of 2014.

Teams of able-bodied individuals will compete in wheelchair basketball games in order to raise money for the non-profit Achieving Wheelchair Equality. The tournament will be head at the Citadel's Deas Hall from 9AM until 4PM.

Two professional wheelchair basketball teams, the North Charleston Hurricanes and the Georgia Hawks, will play in an exhibition game at 12:30PM.

The goal of Achieving Wheelchair Equality is to help wheelchair users and others with mobility difficulties overcome the unique obstacles they face with employment, community, family, and recreation by providing advocacy, peer support, and counseling services.

Along with the tournament, there will be an adaptive auto-show, durable medical equipment information table, recreational adaptation demonstrations, a silent auction including getaways in the mountains, Clemson Sports memorabilia, Riverdogs tickets, and more, and raffle prizes.
