Wheelchair basketball puts dreams in motion

By  | 

MANDAN, N.D. (KFYR) -- A non-profit organization, Dreams in Motion, provides sporting opportunities for people with mobility challenges or visual impairments.

The Summer Wheelchair Basketball is a three-day event at a middle school in Mandan, North Dakota. Anyone is welcome to participate, regardless of age or skill set, mobility challenged or able bodied. Players and coaches from Southwest Minnesota State teach skills, drills, and have the players scrimmage each other.

"We say all the time that we're playing the same game you do on your feet, we just need an extra piece of special equipment to do it. So I think it's just part of that big model of the world of just becoming more inclusive, and it's really fun to see and it's really cool to be able to watch,” said Michael Kaip, Dreams in Motion co-founder.
