Saturday at Hoggard High School a young man hopes to realize a dream with the help of his classmates.

Freshman Justin Verzaal is not about to let muscular dystrophy hold him back. He wants to start a power wheelchair hockey team here in eastern North Carolina.

With the help of Hoggard’s student leadership class, the school will hold a start-up clinic Saturday at 1:00 p.m. in the Hoggard gym. Justin said wheelchair hockey is fun. “Over the summer I went to a power hockey tournament at the RBC Center in Raleigh. It was crazy,” he said.

The clinic is open to everyone, but they especially want you to come if you are in a power wheelchair.
