Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Original item (10/6/11, 8 a.m.): This year's CMJ Music Marathon is less than two weeks away, and Wheelchair Sports Camp is one of several Denver-based acts planning to make the trek -- "planning" being the key word here. The outfit, led by Kalyn Heffernan, has landed an invitation to perform, but it needs a little help getting to NYC. If you're feeling generous, the band has set up a Kickstarter page and could use your help. With five days to go, the act is about halfway to its goal.
