Burke's 2019 Wheelchair Games – Athletes Combine Fun With Recovery
Michael Hearing, October 09, 2019
The Wheelchair Games typically include participants who span the age spectrum – from as young as five years old on up to 70. They compete in a variety of events such as wheelchair slalom races, javelin throwing, and table tennis, and they all get a plaque and a goody bag containing bandanas donated by Wholesale For Everyone. This year's Wheelchair Games, the 40th annual held on September 21, boasted 50 athletes. In addition, a new twist this year was the incorporation into the Games of the Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Sports and Vendor Expo in honor of Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month (September).
