The Kids Day event at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games offers local children with physical disabilities an opportunity to interact with wheelchair athletes competing in the Games. Under the guidance of these experienced athlete mentors, the children will enjoy learning about and participating in adaptive sports activities. This year’s activities will be boccia, slalom and softball.
Kids Day promotes a fun and active lifestyle to children with physical disabilities while fostering important life skills such as teamwork and determination. Participating kids will have an opportunity to learn about and play each sport. At the conclusion of the event, veteran athlete mentors will present the children with their own gold medal for participating in this year’s Kids Day event.
