The Veterans with Disabilities Program is held on Fridays in the ARC. Veterans from the VA hospital in Butler participate in a variety of sport activities. University students in the program design class organize activities such as baseball, frisbee, golf, tennis, and football. These activities are broken down into skill components for the veterans to work on, and by the end of each session the veterans will put the skills together to play a short game. Volunteers are necessary to give the vets the one-on-one assistance that they need, as about 90% of the veterans use a wheelchair.
For more information about the veterans program, please contact Dr. Dallas Jackson firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 724-738-4251.
