United We Stand: Enriching the Lives of Our Wounded Veterans

The US Olympic Committee is a leader in the Paralympic sports movement and dedicated to assisting physically disabled Americans. While the USOC is widely known for competitive athletic programs, it is also dedicated to enriching the lives of wounded Veterans and encouraging them to live an active lifestyle.

Deloitte, a partner of the USOC, recently hosted a discussion on this very subject. Charlie Huebner, Chief of United States Olympic Committee Paralympics and Mark Goulart, Principal at Deloitte, talk about the great advances the USOC Paralympic programs have made to the lives of those who have fought courageously for our country.

A few of the points discussed are:

  • Origins of the Paralympics sports movement
  • How the USOC Paralympics partnership with the VA and DoD are is enhancing the lives of Veterans
  • A look into USOC Paralympics sports and grass roots programming in local communities
  • How Paralympic programs are getting Veterans back to work and play
  • Warrior Games highlights
  • How to become a supporter and attend the Warrior games in Cold springs, Colorado
