Victor Backer and Glen Wong of Games Far West 2018 are joining the City of Alameda to host a reception to introduce the community to this year’s Valor Games — a three-day sports competition for our country's disabled veterans and service members. “Qualifying athletes include Veterans or active duty service members from any era with a disability,” said Backer.
The fifth annual Valor Games took place Friday, June 2, to Monday, June 5 on Coast Guard Island.
For the last four years Coast Guard Island has hosted the event. The event brings together disabled veterans and active service duty members to engage in the three days of Paralympic sport competitions.
Valor Games Far West has been awarded the Veterans Adminstration (VA) Adapted Sports Grant to host Valor Games Far West 2020, on Coast Guard Island in Alameda. More than 100 injured, ill and wounded athletes from the Western United States will once again compete in various sports from June 11 through 14 next year.
