On Wednesday night I am privileged to be playing in the first annual "Celebrity Wheelchair Basketball Challenge" at Seaman High School.  Game time: 7:30pm.  Myself and Melissa Brunner will be teamed up with other local media members along with the Kansas Wheelhawks to play a game of wheelchair basketball.  The event is a fundraiser for Kansas Accessible Sports which is a non-profit organization that promotes accessible sports, events and organizations for people with disabilities in Kansas. 

The festivities actually begin at 6:30 with wheelchair races and other contests.  The game starts at 7:30 and there will be games for the whole family throughout the night.  A silent auction will also be taking place with items that range from  a basketball signed by the 2008 National Champion Kansas Jayhawks to Country Stampede tickets and much more!

Admission is cheap, costing only $2 for kids age 6-17 and $4 for adults.  Kids 5 and under are free.  So come and enjoy a fun family filled evening at Seaman High and support a great cause.  Melissa and I will be on the blue team so if you want to support us wear blue.  Hope to see you there!

We had practice last week and it should be a blast on Wednesday night.  The game is very challenging and hard on the hands, but very fun.  I'm pumped.
