The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) a non-profit organization, is a world leader in helping people with physical challenges get involved, and stay involved, in sports. Headquartered in San Diego with regional chapters, CAF provides unparalleled sports opportunities, hope, education and inspiration enabling physically challenged individuals to live active lifestyles.
CAF recognizes the athletic greatness inherent in all people with physical challenges and supports their athletic endeavors by providing unparalleled sports opportunities that lead to success in sports — and in life.”
HOW DOES CAF HELP?
More than eighty cents of every dollar raised provides funding for adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses, programs and events that help challenged athletes get off the sidelines and into the game.
WHY DO CHALLENGED ATHLETES NEED FUNDING?
There are 21 million individuals living with a disability in the United States today. Only one in 10 takes part in fitness activities on a daily basis. A major impediment is cost. Equipment and specialized training that allows these individuals to engage in active lifestyles is very expensive – in fact, for many, it’s cost-prohibitive and is not covered by insurance.
Join us for the “Best Day in Triathlon” in San Diego, October 19th for an amazing day and experience you will never forget!
