Far West Wheelchair Athletic Association will host Valor Games Far West 2020 (VGFW) Thursday, June 11- Sunday, June 14 at Coast Guard Island, in Alameda, CA. This event is for any injured, ill, or wounded Veteran who is eligible for VA healthcare. The goal of the Valor Games is to introduce adapted sports to attendees. We invite you to partner with us as a sponsor for this exciting weekend of athletic competition and activities honoring those individuals who served our country.
Since our event’s inaugural year in 2013, we have introduced 650 Veterans to competition in sports like archery, biathlon, cycling, field events, powerlifting, para-triathlon, rowing and swimming. Eight collaborating Paralympic Sport Clubs, alongside dozens of community sport leagues and businesses, contribute the required expertise, coaching, training, equipment and volunteers to make the event a resounding success.
The Opening Ceremony for Valor Games Far West 2020 will be held midday on Friday, June 12, with the event’s Closing Ceremony midday on Sunday, June 14. We are prepared to offer six sport competitions this year at Coast Guard Island: Archery, biathlon, cycling, field, powerlifting, and rowing.
We want our community involved as spectators, supporters, and volunteers. This is an amazing opportunity for us to give back to our Nation’s Heroes.
