Wheelchair basketballer Ryan Morich is founder of the Red Dust Heelers’ Wheeling and Healing program.

The Wheeling and Healing program assists Indigenous people living with a disability to integrate into all areas of life and promote reconciliation through playing basketball.

It provides tools to help people deal with grief and loss following their or their loved one's disability and unearthing future Indigenous athletes with disability and providing support to them in their chosen sport, while also spreading a message of healing, through partnering with Red Dust Healing.

He is also the captain of the Red Dust Heelers Adelaide National Wheelchair Basketball Team, which debuted in the National Wheelchair Basketball League in 2014.
