Sports & Recreation

The Wisconsin Chapter encourages our members to be active and engaged in sports and recreation. Whether one participates in chapter programs or selects from activities provided by the Zablocki VA Hospital Spinal Cord Unit, we feel these activities are essential to mental and physical health.

See and hear our very own pioneer of adaptive sports and the impact our programs have on our members and the community:

The 28th Annual Trapshoot in Green Bay is over, but not forgotten. With the support of many companies and individual sponsorships, our event was very successful. Thanks goes out to all of them, and all of the volunteers! Please show your support to these companies when you are shopping.
