U.S. Paralympics and the 2014 Warrior Games presented by Deloitte
 

U.S. Paralympics, a division of the U.S. Olympic Committee, is dedicated to becoming the world leader in the Paralympic sports movement and promoting excellence in the lives of people with physical disabilities.
 
Since its formation in 2001, U.S. Paralympics has been inspiring Americans to achieve their dreams. Through education, sports programs and partnerships with community organizations, medical facilities and government agencies, U.S. Paralympics is making a difference in the lives of thousands of people with physical and visual disabilities every day.
 
The Warrior Games is a competition for wounded, injured and ill service members and veterans.  It was created in 2010 by the USOC, in partnership with the Department of Defense and United Service Organizations (USO), to create competitive sports opportunities for injured service members and to enhance awareness about the impact and need to create sustainable physical activity programs for thousands of injured members of the Armed Forces at the community level. 
 
This year’s competition will take place in Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept. 28 – Oct. 3. Two hundred athletes from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Special Operations will compete against each other to vie for the Chairman’s Cup, the award given to the top-performing service branch team.
