Team statement: Children's Specialized Hospital has always encouraged children to be independent despite any challenges that arise. To encourage independence and to benefit from athletic competition, Children’s developed a junior wheelchair athletic program. The hospital's team, "Children's Specialized Hospital – Lightning Wheels" has been in existence since 1981 when the team participated in its first sporting event. Since then, the team has continued to achieve great success on both a team, and an individual level. Many of the past and present members of the team are national record holders in track and field and swimming. The team also has been represented at several international competitions including the 1996, 2000, 2004 & 2008 Paralympics.  Athletes with a physical disability between the ages of 5-21 are eligible to join.
