WESTLAKE, Ohio – Invacare has donated eight power wheelchairs to Youth Challenge’s new Paralympic Power Soccer program, the company recently announced. Participants play four-on-four matches in power wheelchairs fitted with bumpers. The game was designed specifically for power wheelchair users. “Power soccer gives many of the children at YC a unique opportunity to play a competitive team sport,” said Chris Garr, Youth Challenge Director of Program Services. “Thanks to the generosity of Invacare, children who utilize power wheelchairs can now join a team, learn a skill and partake in friendly organized competition.”
