Meet The 2017 Everyday Heroes

The overarching mission is to empower disabled girls and women through basketball, showing them that they can be strong, successful and independent while advocating for themselves. Hunter leads the team, runs its fundraising and camps, and is also a player. In the long term, the Lady Mavericks would like to expand their camps and the number of participants so they can continue to make a difference in the lives of disabled girls and women.
