Members of IDHW’s Division of Licensing and Certification along with teammates from the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services joined in Chair Hoops on March 22-24, a fundraiser for the City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department’s Adaptive Recreation Program.
The tournament raised over $4,000 to help fund scholarships for individuals with disabilities so they can purchase adaptive equipment.
This is the second year that L&C employees have participated in the tournament, which is a great opportunity for basketball players of all ability levels to test their skills from a wheelchair. You do not have to have a disability to play, wheelchairs are provided.
