Changing Lives Through Adaptive Sports

About BlazeSports

BlazeSports America is the legacy of the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games. Our mission is to change the lives of youth and veterans with disabilities through adaptive sports and recreation.

We serve youth, veterans and active military with disabilities including spina bifida, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, dwarfism, amputations, and visual impairments, as well as veterans with PTSD and PTS.
