It is a character embedded in the spirit of those who rise with strength and battle with everything they have. The Valor Games brings together disabled veterans and wounded, ill or injured service members and engages them in three days of Paralympic sport competition. The event celebrates sport as a means of empowering individuals and strengthening community. Beyond competition, the Valor Games connects athletes with ongoing sports opportunities and resources in their local communities.
Promoting healthy, active lifestyles is important to successful community reintegration and the Valor Games proudly support such endeavors. World Sport Chicago hosted the first Valor Games in 2011 and all regional events are organized in partnership with U.S. Paralympics and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
