This is a story of a fellow volunteer of the Hotwheels (David Calhoun) and his story on how he has conqured his obesity problem. I thought that I should start doing a weekly posting on my website displaying how an individual has changed their life and the lives of others. I hope this will inspire the team to try and motivate each of them to help change peoples lives.

HOTWHEELS will NOT be having practice this Saturday, March 16th. Instead, those players who can make it will be attending the MDA Muscle Walk at Halyburton Park. Hockey Demo at 11:45am. Players Message or call for more details. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide manual wheelchairs to players. I may be able to get a couple of manual chairs there, but only if you message me that you really want to be there. However, if you are currently in a chair or have one to bring yourself, please meet us there at 11:15am.
Justin and Christian will be set up at a booth from 8-11 to spread the word about the team and sell raffle tickets. If you are interested about the event, please email me back. We need as many players as we can get to show them what Wheelchair Hockey is about.

For those of you who did not know, the hotwheels now have jerseys. Jerseys were just given out at our last practice to the players and people who ordered jerseys. If you were not able to come to the practice and pick up your jerseys we still have them, but if you want them we will have them at our March 16th practice. Also if more people would like to order jerseys, we need 12 more payments to place another order so please leave either me, my mom, or coach brenden a message telling us you would like to order a jersey.

Just wanted to pass along another opportunity that has come up for Hotwheels in the community. Dan Johnson, Associate Professor- Recreation Therapy at UNCW has invited the Hotwheels team members to put on a hockey demonstration at their Accessible Recreation Day, Friday April 19th. It would be at 11am, so those of you in school may have to arrange to miss and get a ride to UNCW to participate. If you need a letter for school, we can make arrangements. Before we commit, we need at least 5 players min to demonstrate, but we'd like as many as we can get. Please send over an email if you are willing to come. Helpers...this also includes you! Please let me know asap! This is a fantastic way to help get the word out about our team so we are hopeful you can all join us!
Christian and Justin Verzaal

Thanks again for everybody that participated and helped out at the Practice on Saturday. It could not have gone any better than it did. Our team is improving and we are learning new things and becoming more like a team. We are so greatful that Coach Brenden and Coach Chris take time out of their busy schedule to volunteer and help us on Saturday. Without them, I do not know where our team would be.
