The 37th Annual National Veterans Wheelchair Games is right around the corner. The games are being held in Cincinnati, Ohio from July 17th to July 22nd, 2017. Local Cincinnati venues where most of the events are being held include: Duke Energy Convention Center; Stargel Stadium; Fairfield Sportsmen’s Association; and the Powel Crosley Jr YMCA. There are 19 different sports to watch and attendance is free.
The games will also feature a Kids Day on the 19th for children with disabilities in the Cincinnati area.
Co-presented by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), athletes from all over the United States will be participating in the games. Any veteran with a spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis, amputations and other neurological injuries that uses a wheelchair for sport, and is eligible for care through the VA, can participate!
While in town enjoying the games, stop at the Recreation & Fitness Expo located at the Duke Energy Center, Booth #129 on Monday, July 17th. We will have an exhibit, and look forward to seeing you.
