    SWAA lost a close friend and supporter.

    It's with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Larry Turner. Larry is a once in a lifetime kind of person. He shared his whole heart with the adaptive sports community. Larry passed, doing what he loved, playing wheelchair basketball with his team. Our hearts go out to the Austin community and his family. This is a huge loss for Texas. He is truly irreplaceable.

    You can make a donation to the Larry Dean Turner Memorial Donation to help his family.  Click here
