What’s The Cause?

We are raising awareness for athletes with disabilities in our community. Our focus is the Brock Niagara Penguins Wheelchair Basketball team. Our goal is to raise enough money to buy a new wheelchair  and  to cover the registration fees for athletes who cannot afford the $125 enrollment… a grand total of $2500! 

If we are able to raise more than our goal we will be putting it towards new wheelchairs! The chairs are essential to the growth of the program as athletes do not have to buy their own. Also, the chairs often get lent to schools and community groups to help promote the sport of Wheelchair basketball and athletes with disabilities. To read more about the Penguins and athletes with disabilities read our “Big News” post.
