Volunteer for the National Veterans Wheelchair Games
You can be a part of the 2014 National Veterans Wheelchair Games! If you are going to be in or around Philadelphia, August 12 – 17, 2014, a great experience awaits you.
The Department of Veterans Affairs and Paralyzed Veterans of America are co-presenting the 34th National Veterans Wheelchair Games. Over 600 athletes from around the United States and Great Britain will visit the City of Brotherly love to compete in 19 wheelchair sporting events.
It will take more than 2,500 volunteers to make this week a success. Our veterans need you! There are many opportunities ranging from sporting events, greeters and assistance at the airport and dozens of other critical jobs to make the event run smoothly.
The minimum volunteer age is 14 years old. However, individuals younger than 14 can join the “fans in the stands” and cheer on our athletes to victory.
Come one, come all. With the sports town that Philadelphia is, what a great way to share Philly pride!!!
