LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – UW-La Crosse is providing an opportunity for people with unique abilities to play sports at Mitchell Hall. Sunday during UWL’s Wheels for All event members of the community could join in for wheelchair handball or wheelchair basketball.

This event is a part of UWL’s Compassion – Inclusion and Equity missions and raises money for people with disabilities.

“Honestly it’s for the community it’s raising money for people with disabilities, it’s a great event to help those in need, so I think it’s awesome bringing the community together, everyone with every ability just working together,” said event organizer, Michael Schumacher.

This is the sixth year of Wheels for All. Event organizers say it takes a semester of planning to bring the event to life.
