Did you know that it takes an average of four years for people to start a recreational activity after a permanently disabling injury? Were you aware that only 16% of adaptive athletes credit a therapist for introducing them to their sport? The truth is that many therapists and clinicians are unaware of the programs available to the Las Vegas disabled community. The High Rollers have made it a part of their mission to educate clinicians and other community members about the opportunities available to those on wheels. At some of our events, we even show people how to pop wheelies and let them play a bit of wheelchair rugby! Contact Us to get involved in a future event.
Hospitals and assisted living facilities accumulate extra wheelchairs from former patients. In order to alleviate this problem and ensure those in need have access to this equipment, the High Rollers pick up this equipment using their team bus and donate it to Memra Medical Relief Services.
The High Rollers have also partnered with Nevada Wheelchair Foundation to help people in need of wheelchairs access this equipment regardless of their ability to pay. All wheelchair rugby tournaments hosted by the High Rollers include a wheelchair giveaway and a fundraiser for the Nevada Wheelchair Foundation.
