The athletes will be part of a panel that discusses the benefits and demands of adaptive athletics. The discussion follows a screening of the Academy Award-nominated “Murderball,” a 2005 documentary about the USA Wheelchair Rugby Team’s pursuit of the 2004 Paralympics Gold Medal.

 “These individuals are inspiring because of the work and dedication they have invested into their craft,” said Dr. Dolores Durán-Cerda, PCC Senior Assistant to the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor, who oversees Disabled Student Resources for the College.

Durán-Cerda said she hopes that by featuring world-class athletes, PCC will be able to build interest in adaptive athletics in the College and community.
