The National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) is a sports and rehabilitation program for military service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition due to 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. There are many opportunities to volunteer for the games throughout the week including: athlete meals and registration, block party setup, transportation, quad rugby scorekeeper, and more!
