With NCAA March Madness fever sweeping across North America, there’s no better time to check out People In Motion’s Wheelchair Basketball program. With two practices a week and trips to provincial and national tournaments each year, Kelowna’s local wheelchair basketball team is a great place for youth and adults to meet new friends and travel.
