US Veterans Wheelchair Games Coming to Va.

Richmond will host the 32nd National Veterans Wheelchair Games in 2012.

McGuire VA Medical Center and the Virginia Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America will make the official announcement on Friday.

The June 25-30 competition will bring nearly 600 wheelchair
athletes from across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Great Briton.

The games will showcase 17 athletic events, all of which are open and free to the public.

Sponsors say the games will generate approximately $3 million in
revenue for the Richmond area.
