About the Challenged Athletes Foundation:

Mission

The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that competitive athletics for physically disabled individuals can foster self-esteem and the ability to achieve goals in life. It is our mission to assist and promote these athletes in their competitive pursuits.

Established in 1997, the CAF is a unique organization that recognizes the athletic greatness of people with disabilities and supports these efforts by providing grants for training, competition and equipment needs. Grants are awarded to persons with any type of physical disability and for a wide range of sports. The CAF does not discriminate by age, disability, sport or level of ability. The hundreds of athletes that the CAF has assisted range from world class athletes competing on an international level to those who are recently disabled and desire to become more active. Grants are distributed once a year with applications being accepted year round.

Why do Challenged Athletes Need Funding?

There are 49 million people living in the US with a physical disability. Equipment to be active for someone who is disabled is very expensive and therefore prohibitive for many to pursue an active lifestyle. Funding through the CAF helps make it possible for more people to gain self-esteem through sports. If you?re a family with three children, one with a physical disability, you can buy two bikes at Wal-Mart for less than $200 ? for the third, you must purchase a handcycle that runs upwards of $1,500.

Fundraising

The ten-year goal of the CAF is to create a one million dollar endowment fund that will continue to assist physically challenged athletes indefinitely. Of the revenue generated, 90% will be set aside for the endowment fund or be used for individual grant payments. To date, the CAF has provided 875 grants to athletes with disabilities all over the world and raised over 2.7 million dollars.
