Join The Arc Wayne during National Disability Awareness Month for the first Arc Madness 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament on Sunday, March 22! This is a classic, friendly 3-on-3 tournament with a twist: everyone plays in a wheelchair. Eight teams will face off in a double-elimination bracket for the first place prize (TBD). We add wheelchairs to the game to promote the inclusion of people with all abilities so all athletes can gain a feel for what it might be like to have a physical disability.
The first game tips off at 10 a.m., and each matchup will have two 8-minute halves with a 1-minute halftime. A modified set of rules will be sent in your confirmation email and read off before the first game.
All proceeds from this event will benefit The Arc of Wayne Foundation to help create more opportunities for people with disabilities in our community. If you would like to help us raise more money, you can start your own online fundraiser at www.arcwayne.org/arcmadness. Whoever raises the most money will win a prize from our generous donors!
Thanks for helping us make our community more inclusive and joining us for this fun event!
