FORT WAYNE, IN - The University of Central Oklahoma proudly announces the creation of the Endeavor Games Series, an expansion of the UCO Endeavor Games, with the 2017 Turnstone Endeavor Games this April 21-23 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Athletes with physical disabilities will now have more opportunities to compete in this Midwestern location for the games.

The 2017 Turnstone Endeavor Games, presented by Parkview Physicians Group, will feature events in eight sports for physically disabled athletes, including air rifle shooting, boccia, goalball, sitting volleyball, swimming, table tennis, track and field and wheelchair basketball. The event also will offer sports clinics for air rifle shooting, boccia, goalball, swimming and track and field, as well as classifications for swimming and track and field.

Turnstone is a not-for-profit organization providing therapeutic, educational, wellness and recreational programs to empower people with disabilities throughout northern Indiana.

"Turnstone and the Fort Wayne community are excited about extending the games to the Midwest. Combining Turnstone's event hosting experience and world-class facilities with the Endeavor Games' expertise, brand and resources promises to produce a first-class event."

The creation of the series is part of an overall initiative to extend the reach of the event to more cities throughout the nation. The result would be increased opportunities for competition for children, adults and military service members with physical disabilities.
