In partnership with Toyota and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the 76ers presented two athletes with custom Per4Max basketball wheelchairs.
Athletes Joseline Castillo and Xavier Ray were surprised on the court at The Center before the 76ers host the Atlanta Hawks. The custom chairs will help both athletes compete in the upcoming wheelchair basketball season.
