Warrior Games: Back in Action

Challenge Accepted! 

More than 200 wounded, ill and injured service members and veteran athletes are competing in the 2023 Warrior Games Challenge, a Paralympic-style competitive event.

The competition features adaptive sports used by wounded warriors as part of their recovery process. Each service provides newly enrolled wounded warriors with access to adaptive sports, allowing them to find new ways of enhancing their recovery journey.
