The money raised is going to get sport wheelchairs for junior and high school athletes. We are bringing 4 high school athletes with disabilities to play in the game along side all the able body celebrities. The 4 High School Athletes that are playing in the game all need a race chair to start competing in track and field this spring with the schools. The UIL is allowing disabled athletes to compete in track and field this spring. They are only letting them do the 100m and 400m dash and throw shot put for a field event. They will need race wheelchairs to race in and the price is around $3500 for one chair.
