For the past five years, athletes from Marywood University and Allied Services have been teaming up for a wheelchair basketball game, raising money and awareness for St. Joseph's Center.

March 24, at 6:30 p.m., at the Mellow Center, the Marywood University men's and women's basketball teams will play against Allied Forces from Allied Services in a wheelchair basketball game. Doors will open at 5 p.m. General admission is $5, and students with ID will be admitted for $3.

Kevin Kuna, assistant director of Student Support Services, got the idea for a charity basketball game when he was an instructor.

"I would like to raise awareness for spinal cord injury," Kuna said. "Service is a part of our life, and there are others who are in need. It really shows that our clubs and teams care, and they give back to the community."
