NORTH TEXAS WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL CONFERENCE
October 22, 2012

When your child is confined to a wheelchair, nothing brings more joy than to see them active and fully engaged in something they love and look forward to doing. Since joining the program over 9 years ago, the Jr Mavs have been the center of our daughter's universe. She has made friends with kids facing similar life challenges. She has benefited from the friendship and leadership of volunteer coaches who are dedicated to helping kids experience all that wheelchair basketball has to offer. These are adults who can share how they overcame difficulties of life in a wheelchair, some of whom are world class athletes, representing the USA in the Paralympics. It has kept our daughter physically active and challenged. She has traveled across the country and made friends with kids from Seattle to Denver to Chicago. The Dallas Jr Wheelchair Mavs have helped our daughter in ways that far exceeded our expectations. Also, there is a place in the program for children with greatly differing disabilities, from barely able to push a wheelchair to highly competitive kids with strong upper bodies. They all help and support each other. This is a truly great nonprofit!!
