AFA is Proud to Support the Air Force Wounded Warrior Adaptive Sports Camp

The Air Force Association is proud to support the Adaptive Sports Camp being held at Andrews Air Force Base June 25 – June 27, 2013. The camp will be hosted by the Air Force Wounded Warrior Adaptive Sports Program staff, which uses sports as a part of the healing process for wounded, injured, and ill Airmen.

The Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) program aims to provide extraordinary care, service, and assistance to our Airmen in need. AFA created the Wounded Airman Program to support initiatives like the Adaptive Sports Program that help rehabilitate wounded Airmen as they make their way through the recovery process.

Throughout the Adaptive Sports Camp, AFA will participate in a variety of events including hosting a lunch for staff and athletes on Wednesday, June 26, 2013. AFA Executive Vice President Dick Newton will also participate in a wheelchair basketball drill practice in the morning before lunch.

“The Air Force Association is excited to participate in this wonderful program and engage with our Airmen,” said Dick Newton, AFA Executive Vice President. “AFW2 is doing invaluable work to provide continuing care to our Airmen and their families during all stages of their recovery and rehabilitation. I’m looking forward to taking part in the activities next week, and continuing to support our Airmen and their families in the future.”
