About the Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Sports Program
The Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Sports Program at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) was established in 1982 with a gift from the Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz family. Since that time, the program has grown into one of the longest running year-round, cross-disability sports and recreation programs in the country.
Originally located on the first floor of RIC, the Wirtz Sports Program moved to RIC's Helen M. Galvin Health and Fitness Center in 1996 where it continues to expand. The Wirtz Sports Program currently offers a variety of different competitive sports and recreational activities for little to no cost to all participants.
