Valor Games Midwest 2019 brings together disabled veterans and wounded, ill or injured service members and engages them in three days of Paralympic sport competition hosted in Chicago, Illinois. The event celebrates sport as a means of empowering individuals and strengthening community. Athletes from the Midwest are invited to apply and compete in sports like shot put, discus, cycling, archery, powerlifting and rowing. This is a grassroots, introductory competition so no previous experience is required.
