Paralyzed Veterans of America’s 12th annual Mission: ABLE Awards

PVA Awards 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – On September 19, 2017, Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) welcomed approximately 480 esteemed guests to its 12th annual Mission: ABLE Awards. The event achieved record attendance and included guests from all over the nation, including distinguished service members, veterans, friends and supporters of Paralyzed Veterans to honor its 2017 Mission: ABLE Award recipients. Presiding over the ceremonies was former Under Secretary of the Army, the Honorable Patrick Murphy, along with Dr. David Shulkin, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, who gave the evening’s keynote address.

From Left to Right: Noah Currier, David Zurfluh, Albert F Kovach Jr and Anthony Pordon, Executive Vice President Investor Relations and Corporate Development accepting Penske Automotive Group’s award for ‘The Achieve: ABLE Award’.

“I am honored to join Paralyzed Veterans of America’s Mission: ABLE Awards in recognizing and celebrating the immense power of partnership and collaboration. The entire Paralyzed Veterans of America leadership team and their staff are fighting hard for Veterans every day. They are always there when veterans are in need, and they are always by VA’s side, guiding us toward the right decisions for veterans with spinal cord injury or disease. We couldn’t ask for a better partner,” Shulkin said in his remarks.

The annual awards raised a record $750,000 from corporate supporters in advance of the event. These funds will benefit Paralyzed Veterans’ programs and services, including benefits and employment assistance, and rehabilitative sports opportunities, all of which are provided free to veterans.

“We celebrate this year’s honorees and thank them and all of our supporters for their investment in and commitment to Paralyzed Veterans of America’s mission to ensure veterans have access to the jobs, care and benefits they’ve earned and deserve,” said David Zurfluh, National President of Paralyzed Veterans. “Their active and continued partnership is critical to the continued success we have advocating on behalf of our nation’s veterans.”
