Basketball players of all abilities had the opportunity to test their skills from a wheelchair as part of a tournament sponsored by the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) on April 12th in the Wellness Center gym on the Downers Grove Campus.

Student teams played in specialized wheelchairs as a way to gain a better understanding of the challenges and physical demands people with disabilities face on a daily basis. The event raised funds for the Windy City Warriors Wheelchair team which are a part of the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA).
