On October 9th, 2012, Carleton University will be hosting a parasport event consisting of a Parasport festival during the day and a Wheelchair basketball game in the evening.
The festival will consist of representatives from more than 15 local parasport clubs who are seeking new athletes and volunteers. You will have the opportunity to learn more about each sport, try them for yourself, and see how you can get involved. This festival is intended for people of all abilities including not only participants but those interested in volunteering as coaches, officials, classifiers, guides or simply helping out. Teachers, health care providers and parents of children with disabilities are also encouraged to attend. Details
The Wheelchair Basketball game is an Ontario vs Quebec Wheelchair Basketball Exhibition featuring members of Canada’s Paralympic team returning from London! All proceeds from this game will go directly to CanUgan, an organization which supports the manufacture of hand propelled tricycles for persons with disabilities in the Kasese district of Uganda.
