Wheelchair basketball team makes a ‘lightning’ comeback

Wheelchair basketball is one of the most popular wheelchair sports in the country, and it provides players the opportunity to remain active after becoming paralyzed.

In Columbia, S.C., the Richland County Recreation Commission (RCRC) Lightning is pushing through the season with a 10-4 record. The team members are grateful to be playing this season since they hadn’t played in years due to funding issues.

Thanks to several sponsors, including  the South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association, the Lightning are blazing the court again. Check out the video below about how the sport helps those with injuries live an active, healthy lifestyle.

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
