I went to the Endeavor Games (Paralympics qualification trial) during PT school as a medical volunteer and it was honestly one of the best hands on experiences I had in school. It was neat watching and then trying some of the sports. Then I also got to hear first hand accounts (just talking to the athletes, nothing formal) of what it was like to have a disability and overcome it.
How: FREE to the public! Just register early if you want a meal (costs extra for watchers, free for athletes) or a t-shirt by clicking above link. Also see the parking instructions on the link.
