Potsdam Rotary Club Wheelchair Challenge
Friday, November 5, 2010 - 11:35 am

The Potsdam Rotary Club recently held its second annual Wheelchair Challenge to raise funds for the Wheelchair Foundation. The Challenge, which featured teams of four in an elimination completion relay race, was held at the Maxcy Hall field house at SUNY Potsdam. Not only did the event raise awareness of the difficulties faced by individuals who require wheelchairs, it provided funds to purchase twenty wheelchairs for The Wheelchair Foundation. Potsdam Central School administrators (Patrick Brady, Joann Chambers, Jamie Cruikshank, Larry Jenne) took first place this year, narrowly beating out second place team Kelly Services, last year’s champs (Michelle McGill, Kimberly Jones, Andrea Waters and Joe McGill). Third place was captured by Penski sponsored team of “Papa’s Angels” (Abby Scott, Kylee Mason, DanI Sinnigen and Liz Demsy). Best costume prizes were award to “The Rolling Molars” from the office of Dr. Stacy Howlett, DDS. To see a slideshow of other photos from the event, click here.
