"Say you do not feel you are a great basketball player, or your skills are very much in the hoops area. It doesn't matter, once you get in the wheelchair we're all on the same playing field. Able-bodied, disabled individual, it doesn't matter, we all have a lot to learn as far as the game goes and so it's a fun event for everyone," said Jackie Mrachek, Dreams in Motion Coach.
