About

Get ready for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser where everybody learns and plays basketball in a wheelchair...and we mean everybody!

August Madness is designed for you and your friends, family, and co-workers to experience the excitement of adapted sports first hand while having a great time raising money for an All-Star organization-Bridge II Sports!

Adding to the fun, is a star-studded draft event where teams pick an All-Star player- past pro and collegiate stars, elite wheelchair ballers, and special guests. The team that raises the most earns the top pick!

How to Join:

Step 1: Get your team and Register- 4 to 7 players age 16+, no wheelchair basketball experience needed. All abilities welcome.

Step 2: Raise funds- $1,000 minimum per team to play with the ultimate goal of $2,500 in support of Bridge II Sports year-round programming for people with physical disabilities

Step 3: Spread the word and get ready. Join us for training events in July and August at the YMCA Cage Court on the American Tobacco Campus and then it's on! Mix and mingle at the draft & silent auction on Sunday, Aug. 26 at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park from 6-9pm as well as pick your All-Star.  Then on Monday, Aug. 27, teams will meet and play on the court at PNC Arena!
