They Can, You Can, We Can.

Challenged Athletes FoundationWe all have reasons why we don’t do this or we don’t do that. Then, we sit back in awe of those who do and wonder why we can’t be like them. Well, we can. Sometimes we just need to find the right inspiration and motivation to get moving. If there ever was a reason to do so, it would be the CAF.

Last year Rausch PT put a team together and hosted several fundraising events to support John Elliot and the Challenged Athletes Foundation. If you have ever spent time talking to John, I am sure that he has shared with you his passion for CAF.

Every year, CAF holds the San Diego Triathlon Challenge in La Jolla Cove. It is called “The Best Day in Triathlon” for good reason.

Challenged Athletes FoundationIf you visit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) homepage, and search under “what we do”, you will find the following: “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.” The Challenged Athletes Foundation is an organization dedicated to providing unique opportunities (including wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and adaptive bikes) to athletes who would otherwise be unable to participate in the sport or activity that they love ( i.e. running, cycling, skateboarding, basketball etc.).

This year, the event is October 19th. Don’t miss out on this amazing event. Sign up and join Team Rausch PT as a relay swimmer, cyclist or runner.

Each person is responsible for the initial $100 entry fee and then an additional $400 for a total of $500. We will be planning fundraisers to help each of us meet this goal – so don’t worry!
