Pi Kappa Phi and the P.E.A.C.E. Office are sponsoring UT’s first empathy basketball tournament on Nov. 10 from 5-8 p.m. All are welcome to come and support as teams literally compete on a new level.
All competitors will be in wheelchairs to provide them with a different perspective at what it is like to live with a disability.
Teams will consist of fivemembers, and may be a combination of men and women. All teams must register in the P.E.A.C.E. Office no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 3 in Vaughn 206.
All the rules and guidelines will be in the packets that can be picked up in the Student Activities Office in Vaughn 215 or in the P.E.A.C.E. Office in Vaughn 206.
All those participating are guaranteed an unforgettable experience. They will be challenging not only themselves, but the nationally recognized disability team that will be in the tournament as well.
The brothers of Pi Kappa Phi are hosting the event for the benefit of their philanthropy, PUSH America. PUSH, or People Understanding Severe Handicaps, is a philanthropy that only exists with Pi Kappa Phi.
Together, PUSH and Pi Kappa Phi raise millions of dollars each year that enable the fraternity to help raise awareness about people with disabilities.
All participants will receive campus service hours for themselves and the organization that they represent.
Questions on how to register and information can be directed to the tournament director, Jeremy Horowitz, at email@example.com.
