BANGOR — Husson University will sponsor its annual wheelchair basketball tournament noon-4 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at Newman Gymnasium on campus.
For more than a dozen years, the event has raised money for peer recreation programs sponsored by Alpha One, an independent living agency that serves people with disabilities. These programs include Youth in Motion, which meets monthly to offer activities for youngsters who use wheelchairs.
Participants will include wheelchair athlete teams such as the High Rollers from Bangor and the Wheelers from the Augusta area. Also playing will be students and faculty from the physical therapy and occupational therapy departments at Husson University.
Admission will be by donation. Refreshments will be sold, and there will be raffles for gift certificates and other prizes donated by area businesses.
