The Story

Co-Presented by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games (http://wheelchairgames.org) is a rehabilitation and wheelchair sports program empowering Veterans with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, amputations and other neurological injuries to live more active and healthy lives through wheelchair sports and recreation.

Each summer, Veterans from across the United States, including a team from Great Britain, travel to a new community hosting the NVWG. During the week, Veterans compete in 18 wheelchair sports events while providing encouragement and mentoring for new Veterans. Veterans at the Games truly educate newly disabled Veterans on what is possible and those witnessing the events realize that limitations are only state of mind.


We Need Your Help!

The 2015 National Veterans Wheelchair Games heads to Dallas, Texas June 21-26, 2015. The NVWG organization has asked for protection for our veterans because many of the events will be held outdoors. Together with Soldiers’ Angels (http://www.soldiersangels.org), I have pledged to provide 800 sunscreen care packages to our veteran service members for the upcoming summer games. Your donation will benefit each event participant. Please help us to let them know that they are remembered, supported, and that we are grateful for their service.

Our service members, military families and veterans have made and continue to make remarkable personal sacrifices for our country. When you give to Operation Sunscreen, you help make a personal sacrifice for them. Give whatever you can.... every little bit helps!
