“I’m here to overcome my fear and just get out there and give it a shot,” Army veteran Michael Cain said. “If I fall, I fall. I’m just going to get right back up anyway.”

The Sports Center for the Disabled wants to challenge the veterans to do things they never thought they could do and learn to overcome their disabilities.
