BlazeSports America, a nonprofit organization founded after the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games and a leader in the field of adaptive sports and recreation, is hosting its third annual Peachtree Paragames event on June 16 and 17. The Paragames is a multi-sport event that provides the continuation of competition for the developmental to elite Paralympic athlete. The competition will include archery, track and field and swimming events and take place in the heart of Atlanta.
“We are thrilled to host our third annual Peachtree Paragames,” states Dawn Churi, Executive Director of BlazeSports. “Our goal at BlazeSports is to provide a competitive opportunity for adaptive athletes of all levels and to introduce more opportunities for these incredible athletes and the Paragames does just that. We are excited to continue this event in its third year and look forward to expanding Blaze’s impact in the adaptive sport community.”
This multi-sport event was created as a tribute to the first Paralympic Games held in Atlanta, Georgia during the 1996 Olympics. Its purpose is to not only showcase and celebrate Paralympians but also to educate and encourage both youth and veteran athletes of all skill levels to join the BlazeSports America family.
The event, which takes place at The Westminster Schools, will include free clinics that focus on a variety of adaptive sports such as rowing, pickleball and e-sports for all participants and those new to the world of adaptive sports.
