Wheelchair Basketball Fun for All

Posted:Saturday, May 28th, 2011 at 10:30 am

Another part of the fundraising week’s events was a wheelchair basketball game.

Principal John Commyn, The Fraser Varsity Basketball Team and Fraser Volunteer Fire Fighters Kevin Dempsey, Bob Beauregard and Jim Ligorotis took on the challenge of playing basketball in wheelchairs. They played the Sterling Heights Challengers, an amazing team of wheelchair-athletes who take basketball to a new level.

We thank all who came out to cheer their team on! Both teams played a great game. We would also like to extend another thank you to all of the athletes, who played so that children will be able to enjoy a barrier-free playground and become champions themselves.
