Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

More than 650 wheelchair athletes across from the U.S., Great Britain and Puerto Rico have registered and are expected to compete in 18 medal-awarding athletic events and two exhibition events to be held at various venues across the city July 13-18. This is the second time the Games have been held in Florida; Miami hosted them in 1991.

During this special event, several Veterans who are competing in the Games will demonstrate their skills in an adaptive basketball exhibition that pits the wheelchair athletes against a “celebrity” team comprised of leaders from the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital and local news media.

WHEN: Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 11:30 a.m. to Noon
