Athlete Spotlight

Adaptive sports can change lives and inspire others to do the same. Dr. Ken Lee, head of spinal cord medicine at VA Medical Center in Milwaukee and himself a combat veteran and former patient (he received a traumatic brain injury from a suicide car bombing), says: “Many people think adaptive sports are fun and games. They don’t realize it is all about rehab. Adaptive sports keep the rehab in motion—and keeps the injured moving forward.”

Paralyzed Veterans of America offers a variety of adaptive sports opportunities for disabled veterans. The following are stories of veterans who have benefited from Paralyzed Veterans Sports and Recreation programs.
