The 11th Annual Cowichan Wheels wheelchair rugby tournament takes place Sunday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Duncan City Square.

A total of 16 teams will play for the Lions Cup, named in honour of the sponsoring Duncan Lions Club.

The whole family can watch the participants try to manoeuvre wheelchairs around the scenic square at this fundraising event.

There will also be music by the McCandless Family Band, and food and fun for the family. All money raised stays in the Valley.

Over the years, thousands of dollars have been raised to help overcome a variety of accessibility issues.

This year’s money is going to the Wheelchair Rugby Club and a bursary for students with a disability.
