I am proud to sit on the board of World Sport Chicago, the legacy organization of the 2016 Olympic & Paralympic bid. WSC is the host of the Valor Games, a great event that helps many veterans.
There are currently more than 5.5 million veterans in the United States living with a disability and an estimated one-third of returning veterans suffer from a mental-health condition.
Studies show that disabled veterans who participate in sports report better overall health and satisfaction in life.
Our nation’s veterans -- especially our wounded warriors -- have given so much. It is our turn to give back to them.
With three days of camaraderie and sports competition, along with opportunities for year-round engagement, the Valor Games Midwest leverages sport to strengthen and empower our nation’s heroes. Click here to witness the positive impact of the Valor Games.
Every donation makes a difference – will you join us in this crucial mission?
