Paralyzed Veterans of America on July 1, 2014, hosted more than 30 disabled veterans in Milwaukee for its 16th adaptive handcycling clinic, which took place at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee. It was one in a series designed to help veterans who are unable to ride a two-wheeled bike because of spinal cord injury, spinal cord disease, or other disability.

Paralyzed Veterans of America's Fitness and Wellness program began a couple years ago with a goal of getting more paralyzed veterans and others with disabilities out in recreational activities such as handcycling, wheelchair racing, kayaking and other high energy sports.  Paralyzed Veterans had been providing wheelchair basketball, softball, quad rugby and other traditional sports for many years, but it was time to venture into other heart rate-raising opportunities.
 
Specifically the Paralyzed Veterans Racing Team, which is comprised of paralyzed veterans and other veterans with disabilities, competes at cycling and marathon events around the country.  The team focuses on races such as those on the US Handcycling Racing Series; cycling races which help veterans get into the pipeline to excel.
 
The Fitness and Wellness Program also works with Paralyzed Veterans chapters, VA hospitals and others in setting up adapted cycling programs in their areas.  In addition, we also work with Invacare Top End in providing one-day handcycling clinics to clinicians and participants all over the country.
