36th National Veterans Wheelchair Games Salt Lake City, UT, June 27 – July 2, 2016
Texas Team is now gearing up for 2016 Games
The National Wheelchair Games are Co-Presented by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games is a rehabilitation and wheelchair sports program empowering Veterans with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, amputations and other neurological injuries to live more active and healthy lives through wheelchair sports and recreation.
Each summer, Veterans from across the United States, including a team from Great Britain, travel to a new community hosting the NVWG. During the week, Veterans compete in 18 wheelchair sports events while providing encouragement and mentoring for new Veterans. Veterans at the Games truly educate newly disabled Veterans on what is possible and those witnessing the events realize that limitations are only state of mind.
We here at LSPVA send our support and well wishes for a safe trip and best of luck to all and may the force be with all of you as you strive to achieve your personal best in Salt Lake City !!!!
