Philip Emma, Merrimack County Savings Bank President:
“Merrimack County Savings Bank has been proud to sponsor Granite State Independent Living and Hoops on Wheels over the years. They’ve made tremendous strides in promoting advocacy, education and support for people with disabilities and those experiencing the natural process of aging in our community. It’s an honor to stand behind their wonderful mission.”
Last year’s teams competed, and laughed, got some exercise and left very sore. But they also had the warm feeling of supporting this great organization, and knowing that their day of fun helped folks with disabilities. So don’t be sad, sign up today!
We are seeking teams to play and YOU can help make that happen. Do you have 7 fun-loving friends? Seven adventurous co-works? A family of sports nuts? To compete in Hoops on Wheels 2018, submit the form below and save a spot for your team. Each team raises $1000 from sponsors, corporate support or from their own Hoops budget!
The Hoops on Wheels 2018 special guest is Governor Chris Sununu! Governor Sununu will be competing on the courts this year, playing for the Capitol Hoops team! This all-star team will be kicking off the competitive bracket at 12:30pm.
This year’s event will also include an exciting on-site demo of the Wheel Pad L3C to further raise disability awareness and promote accessibility. Event participants will have the chance to step inside a 200-square foot prototype of an accessible bedroom and bathroom for people with new mobility issues. *The temporary housing module will be stationed in the parking lot with tours available from 9:00am-1:00pm.*
All funds raised will directly support the mission of GSIL. Granite State Independent Living (GSIL) is a statewide nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote quality of life with independence for people with disabilities and seniors through advocacy, information, education, transition and support.
