More than 600 athletes will be competing in the 27th National Veterans Wheelchair Games in Milwaukee from June 19 through 23.  A rehabilitation program for military-service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition due to spinal cord injuries, amputations, or certain neurological problems, the Games feature 17 medal events and two exhibition events.  It is the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world.

Out of profound gratitude to the veterans for their service to our country and inspired by them for their continuing courage, The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation has joined many others in supporting the Games.  Bradley proudly and whole-heartedly welcomes all of the Games' participants to Wisconsin and wishes them well in the competition.

The Games are presented by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA).  This year, they are being hosted by the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee and PVA's Wisconsin chapter.

The public is welcome to all of the Games' competitions, specific information about which is available online.  Admission is free.
