2017 Endeavor Games

posted Mar 23, 2017, 6:02 AM by Paul Johnson

June 8-11

The Endeavor Games for athletes with Physical Disabilities was first held in 2000 on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma. The goal was simple; to provide children, adults and military service members with physical disabilities an opportunity to display their talents in a proper and competitive setting against individuals with similar disabilities. The Games were originally created by a non-profit organization, whose overall mission was to offer quality sports programs to athletes with physical disabilities from Oklahoma and beyond. That first year, seven sports were offered and 91 athletes attended from seven states and Australia. The event continued to grow, offering more sports and a few sport clinics. In 2004, UCO recognized the importance and the potential the Endeavor Games had and integrated the non-profit and its small staff into the operations of the newly constructed Wellness Center. This opened many more opportunities for the Games including special efforts on marketing and design. Special events were offered such as sport clinics, different and more sport competitions, a welcoming party and an athlete banquet. In 2016, the Endeavor Games set a record in athlete participation, boasting 310 athletes from 38 states and Puerto Rico.
