Wheelchair basketball is one of the Late Night Penn State programs available on the University Park campus. Other wheelchair basketball games are planned for 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 2 and 9, and 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 10. The program is one of several initiatives at the University made possible through a $10,000 health promotion grant from the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation. The grants, awarded twice yearly, recognize programs that enable people with disabilities to live independent and active lives by seeking to remove societal and environmental barriers that limit the abilities of individuals living with paralysis.
