History: Donnie Langford started the Carolina Tarwheel's program here in Cabarrus County. Donnie started playing wheelchair basketball 30 years ago after being in a car accident in 1979 that left him as an incomplete paraplegic. He is both our team coach and plays guard on the team. His favorite part of wheelchair basketball is the great competition, and the fellowship among the players.
The future is brightâ€Ś Though basketball and softball are our main sports, we have a small group involved in accessible golf and we are looking to expand our programs as our funding increases. Other sports include flag football and adaptive deep sea fishing adventures. Our goal is to grow our program into an organization that has an adaptive sport or activity for any and all physically disabled people that want to be a part of our group.
