The United States Army Training and Doctrine Command shared Monday that it will host its annual Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in September of 2021.
Sporting events will include wheelchair basketball, cycling, indoor rowing, wheelchair rugby, and more. Members from the United States Armed Forces and ally nations are expected to join in.
It should also be noted that Disney is donating the venue and services for this inspiring event.
Cappy Surette, Manager, Executive Communications, Walt Disney World Resort and Co-chair, Disney SALUTE Veteran Business Employee Resource Group, said:
These games truly embody and celebrate the resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran military service members. And this event provides an opportunity for families, friends and supporters like you to see these incredible wounded warriors shine as they display their true warrior spirit through competitive sports.
