WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced today ten sponsors are supporting VA's newest rehabilitative event for injured veterans, the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic.

"VA is fortunate to have such gracious sponsors to bring this new event to our nation's disabled veterans," said Dr. James B. Peake, Secretary of Veterans Affairs. "For many injured veterans, this sports clinic will provide their first exposure to recreational sports after being injured."

The top-level sponsors are Help Hospitalized Veterans, Veterans Canteen Service, American Optometric Association, Booz Allen Hamilton, Challenged America, Marchon, TriWest Healthcare Alliance, Cisco, Invacare and Top End.

The event is open to 100 recently injured veterans who have spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, certain neurological conditions, amputations, other mobility impairments, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

The National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic began Sept. 28 and runs through Oct. 3 at several venues in the San Diego area. Events include sailing, cycling, surfing, kayaking and track and field events.

The sports clinic is the fifth national rehabilitation event offered by VA to promote the healing of body, mind and spirit. VA's other rehabilitation events are the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, the National Veterans Golden Age Games and the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival.
