Kelz coordinates several wheelchair basketball teams in the Okanagan Valley and his dream of creating a team in Vernon and Penticton is being realized with the donation of ten adult-sized basketball wheelchairs from Honda Canada and two additional chairs from Creative Mobility Products Inc. and wheelchair manufacturer, Invacare Canada.  (Photo by Jeff Bassett)
