    Para teaching wc-basketball in Afghanistan on behalf of the Red Cross

    Now THIS is an awesome story.

    A documentary is coming out on Jess Markt, a 35 yr old para from Colorado, who played on the NY Wheelin' Knicks. He's been going to Afghanistan since 2009 teaching both men and women (paralyzed folks, amputees) how to play wheelchair basketball.

    Watch a preview of the documentary: http://www.spinalpedia.com/blog/2012...ar-jess-markt/
