Carl Sandburg College’s second annual wheelchair basketball event will take place at 6 p.m. March 24 in John M. Lewis Gymnasium on the Main Campus in Galesburg, 2400 Tom L. Wilson Blvd.

The brainchild of Sandburg student Mike Martinez, who was born with a condition called spina bifida and uses a wheelchair, this event invites people to experience for themselves what it’s like to use a wheelchair for mobility.

Registration for and admission to the event is a freewill donation, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Special Olympics.

Registration is open to the public. Participation is limited to 40 individuals, and a release form must be completed prior to the event. Players will be assigned to a 10-person team, and all participants will get at least 10 minutes of playing time. Wheelchairs will be provided.

To sign up or for more information, contact Brandon Fox, coordinator of health and fitness, at bfox@sandburg.edu or 309.341.5202.
