Rutgers Women’s Basketball To Hold Children’s Specialized Hospital Day
Wheelchair athletes will perform 4-on-4 basketball exhibition at Feb. 21 game
February 16, 2012 - Rutgers Athletics

Rutgers women’s basketball will host Children’s Specialized Hospital (CSH) Day on Tuesday, Feb. 21, when the Scarlet Knights take on in-state rival Seton Hall at 7:30 p.m.  Wheelchair athletes from CSH will take part in a 4-on-4 exhibition game during halftime.
 
The evening will serve as the kickoff to the sixth annual 2012 Walk n’ Roll scheduled for May 19 in Johnson Park in Piscataway. Rutgers head women’s basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer is the event’s honorary chairperson for the second-straight year. Children’s Specialized Hospital is the nation’s largest service provider for children with special needs serving 19,000 children each year at their nine sites throughout New Jersey.
 
Free rally towels will be given to the first 1,000 fans to arrive.  Members of the Children’s Specialized Hospital staff will be on hand in the lobby to provide information about the annual event as well as a number of other initiatives performed by the hospital.
 
Last year’s Walk n’ Roll drew in over 1,500 community members that were able to raise over $125,000. This year Children’s Specialized Hospital is expecting over 2,000 and hoping to raise $150,000 to support outpatient expantions.
 
To sign up for this year’s Walk ‘n Roll visit: www.walknroll.kintera.org. For any questions please contact Beth Anne Dobosh, 908-389-5642 or volunteers@childrens-specialized.org.
 
Funding raised will support the nation’s largest and best pediatric rehabilitation hospital. With nine sites in New Jersey, Children’s Specialized Hospital treats nearly 19,000 children with special needs each year.
 
Children’s Specialized Hospital invites family, friends and partners of the hospital to come together to walk or roll a 1, 2.5 or 5 mile course while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Johnson Park and the Raritan River. Immediately following the walk supporters will enjoy the free Kohl's KidsAbilities Carnival where everyone can enjoy live music, games and prizes, food, and learn about special needs all for free.
