Paralyzed Veterans Racing Profile: Wes Bergin

“It’s through handcycling and Paralyzed Veterans Racing that I’ve stayed positive and focused on my goals,” Bergin says. “The more active I am, the less pain I experience and the more able I am to cope with stress.”

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 team has two levels of support available to qualifying athletes (Open/A-Team) and also involves other athletes on the team as Associate Members. Associate Members don't receive stipends and are vetted by a current active team member.
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.
