History of Thunder In The Valley Games
The First Thunder in the Valley Games for athletes with physical disabilities was held June 19-22, 2008 at Saginaw Valley State University in Saginaw, Michigan. The Games offer an amazing opportunity to bring people with physical disabilities together to compete in a very similar model to the Paralympics.
The Games are open to all athletes, regardless of age or ability.
Proceeds from Thunder in the Valley Games will be used to help Michigan Sports Unlimited, Inc. (MSU) recognizes the value of sports and recreation in the lives of individuals with disabilities. Our mission is to educate, instruct, and provide unlimited access to a wide range of recreational activities in order to improve the physical, social, and mental well being of individuals with disabilities and ultimately empower them to achieve success.
About Our Logo the entire torch itself is the basic standard for the Olympics. The handle has two parts. First it is a T and a V for Thunder in the Valley. It is also a lightning bolt (the visual representation of thunder) striking a valley. The Flame is in the shape of the lower Peninsula with an accent in the Saginaw area. The stars and stripes help round out the logo and also connect it to the USA.
