Basketball on Wheels!

We are the Ft Lauderdale Sharks. Our team is comprised of men and women who use a wheelchair for their mobility whether it be a birth defect or due to a horrific accident.

We compete in basketball not just because we love the sport but also to spread awareness and educate people that being in a wheelchair isn’t the end but a new beginning and a fulfillment of life from a new prospective.

All donations are tax deducible
