THE STORY:

The National Veterans Wheelchair Games, presented annually by Paralyzed Veterans and VA, are open to all U.S. military veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition as a result of spinal cord injury, certain neurological conditions, amputations or other mobility impairments, and who receive care at VA medical facilities or military treatment centers. We at the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter in Tampa, Florida offer our local Disabled Veterans to attend these games annually for which we fund at least 20 athletes with either airfare and lodging. These expenses can be as much as 15K-20K. We want to send more athletes to these Games annually, with your generous donations we can make this possible. The 36th National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) will be held in Salt Lake City, UT, June 27 – July 2, 2016. “The National Veterans Wheelchair Games represents a significant commitment to the rehabilitation of our nations veterans and empowering them to live more healthy and active lives through sports and recreation. Veterans at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games will compete in 18 events: air guns, archery, basketball, boccia, bowling, handcycling, a motorized wheelchair rally, nine ball, power soccer, quad rugby, slalom, softball, swimming, table tennis, track and field, trapshooting and weightlifting. This year’s Games will also feature a rowing exhibition. Athletes compete in all events against others with similar athletic ability, competitive experience or age.
