Hoops in the CSRA

Last month, the Walton Foundation and CMFA were invited to USC Aiken to perform a halftime demonstration of wheelchair basketball. During halftime of the full-house men’s game, we took to half court and chose people from the audience to sit in a wheelchair and compete against our wheelchair basketball athletes. The audience participants soon learned how difficult it is to coordinate both moving the wheelchair and shooting the basketball! We greatly appreciate USC Aiken including us!

On February 27th, you joined us at Paine College for an even bigger and better halftime show featuring CMFA wheelchair basketball athletes! The crowd loved it and we appreciate all of the support by Paine Athletics!
