Students Inspired by Wheelchair Athletes
Recently, the hard work and determination of 10 Eagle Elementary School students paid off. Their reward? A wheelchair basketball assembly for the entire elementary school featuring UW-Whitewater Warhawks Wheelchair Basketball Team players and UW-Whitewater alumni who currently play for the Milwaukee Bucks Wheelchair Basketball Team.
The athletes spoke about disabilities and how to overcome them, they gave demonstrations about different types of wheelchairs and how they assist people, and taught students and teachers how to play wheelchair basketball.
