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.
