Pledge your support to The Kentucky-Indiana Super Spokes as we compete in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games in Louisville, Kentucky!

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 20 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 a state of mind.

Participation in the games is not just a one-week experience.  It empowers Veterans to be more active and healthy in their daily lives by getting them involved in sports and recreation programs highlighting fitness, social networking, and community involvement. Sports and recreation reinforce critical values necessary for health while combating the risk of isolation, depression, and other factors associated with health. That is what the Games are about!

For the 2019 games, we expect a cost of $1500 per athlete, including travel, training, equipment, coaching and caregiver support for veterans that require assistance to travel.   Your donation provides a life-changing experience for our most seriously injured heroes, sending them on a journey that will impact the rest of their life.  The National Veterans Wheelchair Games opens a door to a new life and your support is the key.
