(OTTAWA, ONTARIO) Hooper Law and Wheelchair Basketball Canada are proud to give young Canadians the opportunity to take their wheelchair basketball game to the next level through the Got What It Takes to Win Grant.
We invite Canadians under the age of 25 to get creative and tell us about their love of wheelchair basketball and explain why they’ve got what it takes to win in the form of a video, photo, letter or drawing. Participants can submit their entry to Wheelchair Basketball Canada for the chance to be awarded a new, customized Quickie All Court sport wheelchair.
“Hooper Law is excited to be involved with Wheelchair Basketball Canada and the Got What it Takes to Win Grant,” said Robert Hooper. “It’s a great opportunity to help youth get involved in a sport that is both challenging and rewarding. If you have the passion and drive to win, we encourage you to participate. We’re looking for individuals who inspire us with their creativity and motivation, so start thinking about how you can show us that you have what it takes.”
“We are thrilled to work with Hooper Law to give back to our community through this grant and empower young Canadians to grow within the sport and pursue their own individual excellence on and off the basketball court,” said Wheelchair Basketball Canada Executive Director Wendy Gittens. “Accessing quality equipment can sometimes be a challenge for young athletes in our sport and this grant will help alleviate that burden. We invite young Canadians across the country to share their passion for wheelchair basketball and look forward to supporting their journey through sport.”
Designed with the help of elite wheelchair basketball athletes, the Quickie All Court features a lightweight, adjustable, high-performance frame built for maneuverability and power. From pick-up games to gold medals, the All Court sports wheelchair will take your game to the next level.
The customized chair is supplied by Sunrise Medical Canada, a world leader in the development, design, and manufacturing of sport wheelchairs, including their popular Quickie brand. Sunrise Medical Canada is the official equipment supplier of Wheelchair Basketball Canada.
Hooper Law is a proud partner of the Canadian Senior Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team. The recipient of the Hooper Law Got What It Takes to Win Grant will also receive a replica Team Canada jersey autographed by the Canadian women’s team.
From now until December 31, 2017, participants can submit their entry by mail or email to Wheelchair Basketball Canada. For more information about the grant, please visit www.wheelchairbasketball.ca.
