Challenged Athletes Foundation

Raise money for Challenged Athletes Foundation

It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.

25 Years of Funding Dreams

In the largest grant distribution in CAF’s 25-year history, $4.3 million in sports related grants for adaptive equipment, coaching, mentoring and competition expenses was awarded to 2,806 individuals with physical challenges. That means, 2,806 individuals of all ages and levels put in the time and effort to apply for a new challenge, leaping out of their comfort zone and into an active and fulfilling lifestyle. With grants funded over 95 different sports and activities from basketball to CrossFit and rock climbing, it’s clear that grantees at every level are eager to try something new and discover the unique activities that make them feel whole.
