The American Collegiate Society for Adapted Athletics (ACSAA) will hold a wheelchair basketball tournament Feb. 23 at Wichita Collegiate.

The tournament will feature able-bodied athletes competing against disabled athletes. All of the athletes will compete in wheelchairs. Collegiate is located at 9115 E. 13th St.

The ACSAA is a nonprofit organization founded by Rob Egan, a senior at Collegiate. The organization raises money to help disabled college athletes compete in sports at their school.

The tournament will be followed by a dinner sponsored by Abuelo’s, a silent auction and a custard bar sponsored by Freddy’s Frozen Custard.
