Bender Arena To Host Wheelchair Basketball Game Supporting Veterns


American University, USOC Paralympic Military Program, Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity have joined forces to host the Armed Forces Wheelchair Basketball game at Bender Arena on April 1 at 6 p.m. The game features Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s “Wounded Warriors” as they take on the San Antonio’s Brooke Army Medical Center team.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and Push America, an organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities.

University President, Neil Kerwin, will be attending and speaking at the event in addition to wounded veteran and Wounded Warrior Project representative Ryan Kules.

Can’t make the event? The Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity – Theta Eta chapter from American University, the game’s organizers, encourage you to make a donation to the cause online. Again, all proceeds go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and people with disabilities.
