Just do it


Here are a few upcoming wheelchair athletic events:

The 29th National Veterans Wheelchair Games kicks off next week (July 13-18) in Spokane, Wash. More than 500 wheelchair athletes will compete in everything from quad rugby to archery to power soccer (shown below) to track and field. Admission is free to the public, if you're in the area.


And the 30th US Open Wheelchair Championships takes place Sept. 1-6 in St. Louis. Sponsors include the HME industry's own The Roho Group and U.S. Rehab.

On that note, I'm taking off to go get some exercise. I'd do it outside, if it weren't raining...again!
