Continued Support for Paralyzed Veterans

During our 10th Annual Paralyzed Veterans Golf Open (PVGO) earlier this year, Agility partnered with the Stand Up and Play Foundation to donate two new Paragolfers to Andrews Airforce Base and Ft. Belvoir Army Base, with the intent of making them available to use by disabled veterans. The Paragolfer allows disabled veterans to stand up and play sports and engage in everyday activities. October 6th was a day to remember for Agility on our continuing journey of supporting paralyzed veterans. It was the official handover of the Stand Up and Play Paragolfer to Andrews Airforce Base Golf Course located at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland.

We are very proud of this partnership and very excited that this wonderful equipment will be available at the golf course to support any paralyzed or handicapped veteran who wants to play golf but did not have the means to engage in the sport.
