Rachel Grusse

Rachel-Grusse-Basketball-PicRachel is a double leg amputee, below the knee (BK), from sepsis at 16 months old.
Since this time she has taken up several sports and found a passion with wheelchair basketball.

She plays basketball for the Connecticut Spokebenders and was awarded a PLAY grant to get a new sport wheelchair. The wheelchair provided Rachel with a better fit, therefore, allowing her to move quicker. We are big basketball fans and wish her the best in all her upcoming games!
