King of the Court: Cicero firefighters vs. Wheelchair Fire
They put up a heck of a fight, but in the end, the Cicero Fire Department was shot down in flames by the Wheelchair Fire basketball team March 28.
The fundraiser, sponsored by the West Suburban Special Recreation Association (WSSRA), pitted the firefighters against the Wheelchair Fire, a team of seasoned basketball players, men and women, who are confined to wheelchairs as a result of injuries or illness, some since birth. The firefighters as well played from wheelchairs. The Fire team won 85-82.
Keith Wallace, WSSRA CEO and founder, said the Wheelchair Fire team members are from all over the south suburbs, southside of Chicago and northwest Indiana.
