Oscar Mike, RACVB to host quad rugby nationals

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) The Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau along with the Oscar Mike Foundation will be hosting the 2019 U.S. Quad Rugby Association National Championships at the UW Health Sports Factory from March 28 to 31.

The veteran-focused organization says an event of this magnitude would not be possible without the local support.

"We had just started practicing here, they got to learn about Oscar Mike and about what we do for veterans and they said, "How cool would it be if we got to host something bigger,"" said Oscar Mike recreational therapist Nicole Verneuille. "Oscar Mike never thought that we'd be able to host something like this, but with the support of the community and finding a facility like this, I can tell you we have been to tournaments all over the country and there is not another facility like this."
