The National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) is a sports and rehabilitation program for military service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition because of spinal cord injuries, amputations or certain neurological problems. Attracting more than 500 athletes each year, the NVWG is the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world. This year, it will be held August 12-17.
There are many opportunities to volunteer for the games throughout the week. Parties interested in volunteering should register no later than June 15. To learn more, click here. If you have any questions, call 215-662-7030 or e-mail CAREs@uphs.upenn.edu.
