Event Overview

Push4Impact gives teams of 4 to 6 people  the opportunity of a lifetime: the to compete in a full- contact wheelchair rugby tournament at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Push4Impact is designed to give participants the chance to try wheelchair rugby in a safe, fun and exciting environment all while raising funds and awareness for BC Wheelchair Sports Association. During the day there will also be opportunities to see and experience the other wheelchair sports that BCWSA offers.

This event is open to everyone – able-bodied individuals and those living with a disability. All you need is a team of 4-6 friends or co-workers, a minimum recommended fundraising amount of $2,500 per team, and a fun and competitive attitude.

*** Please note that Push4Impact 2021 has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  The BC Wheelchair Sports and Push4Impact Team believe that the health and safety of all event participants and our community is the top priority.  

We hope you’ll join us virtually this year for an Evening of Impact, a chance to learn about the difference wheelchair sports and your fundraising makes for athletes with disabilities. Join us for an exciting athlete panel and Q+A, a fantastic silent auction and a special screening of AMI’s Across the Line starring Paralympians Trevor Hirschfield and Byron Green.
