On my blog, I talk a lot about wheelchair sports including basketball and tennis. But, have you heard of wheelchair football? That’s right, there is such a thing as playing football while in a wheelchair.
Approximately 100 students from the occupational therapy and physical therapy programs at MUSC participated in All Sports Day, which showcased a variety of sports that can be played from a wheelchair.
The students also participated in adapted cycling using hand cycles to race around the track. Members of Achieving Wheelchair Equality, including myself, helped demonstrate the importance of staying active while living with a disability.
