The National Wheelchair Relay is more than just a race. It's a "Wheel Challenge" for both able-bodied people and individuals with disabilities. It's an opportunity for adults and children to gain a better understanding of wheelchair use; while raising much needed awareness and funds for those with a spinal cord injury.
