As a Congressionally chartered veterans service organization not an agency of the federal government, the BPVA has been assisting veterans with spinal cord injuries or disease, including Multiple Sclerosis and ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in Ohio since 1972.

    BPVA services include:

  • Veterans Benefits
  • Wheelchair Sports & Recreation
  • Spinal Cord Injury Research
  • Advocacy to eliminate architectural barriers and protect civil rights for persons with disabilities
  • Referral services for assistive devices, housing, employment, and transportation
  • Literature on a variety of topics, including self-care, independent living and disability rights

The Wheelchair Games are a popular fundraiser of the BPVA that helps support their efforts for veterans. The 2nd Annual Buckeye Wheelchair Games will be May 16 – 18, 2013 at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. If you would like more info about the Buckeye PVA or the Wheelchair Games, please visit their website at http://www.buckeyepva.org.
