2010 National Veterans Wheelchair Games

2010 National Veterans Wheelchair Super G Gold Medalist

It was an honor and my pleasure to attend the 2010 National Veterans Wheelchair Games. The Wheelchair Olympics commenced in Denver, on July 4th and ended on July 10th. According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, it is the largest annual wheelchair sports competition - in the world! Veterans who have spinal cord injuries, amputations and neurological diseases participated in wheelchairs in their respective sport. There were 17 different events in all. The Mrs. Colorado organization was one of several volunteer groups asked to take part in the games.
