Annual Burke Rehab Wheelchair Games

The Annual Burke Wheelchair Games: 

September 25, 2010

 

  

Each year, The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital hosts its Wheelchair Games, bringing wheelchair athletes to this very special competition—the only one in Westchester County!

 

Burke’s Wheelchair Games gives those with physical impairments an opportunity to stay fit, enjoy sports, and compete. The Games provide a forum for wheelchair athletes to dispel limits, and to focus on what one “can do,” rather than on what one “cannot do.” Wheelchair athletes participate in separate divisions for futures (six years of age and younger), juniors (ages seven through 21) and adults. 

 

The variety of events includes table tennis, a slalom obstacle course, javelin, shot put, discus, club throw, softball throw, and 60,100,400,800 and 1,500-meter races.
