On the Scene at the Veterans Wheelchair Games

More than 500 veterans from across the country convened Philadelphia to compete in 18 different wheelchair events.

The National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) is the largest annual wheelchair sporting event in the world. In August 2014, the 34th edition took place for the first time in Philadelphia.

More than 500 veterans from all over the country descended on the Cradle of Liberty to compete in 18 different wheelchair events. Along the way, they battled, bonded and believed, proving they're not defined by disabilities, but by their ability to adapt and overcome.

Hosted by the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), this inspirational competition included events ranging from swimming and table tennis to track and field, archery, quad rugby and more. ADVANCE spent the week learning more about the Games, and the participants and volunteers that make this a one-of-a-kind event.
