A unique region of the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF), Team CAF NorCal started with local challenged athletes wanting to support others with physical challenges in their backyard of Northern California. Team CAF NorCal was developed with the goal of creating a community of challenged athletes working together with able-bodied athletes to empower people with physical disabilities to pursue active lifestyles.
You can join the team by fundraising for a CAF event such as the Back to Back NorCal Century Challenge ride, and have the life-changing opportunity to meet and participate in the event of your choice alongside a challenged athlete using equipment your fundraising efforts helped to provide. Funds raised through CAF’s first-class events are used to provide opportunities and support to challenged athletes in the form of adaptive equipment not covered by medical insurance, coaching and training expenses. This support allows challenged athletes to stay active in the game of life through sport.
Working with CAF’s national headquarters, Team CAF NorCal events include cycling events, triathlons, challenged athlete clinics, community and social events taking place throughout the Bay Area. Team CAF NorCal offers a variety of opportunities for all ages and athletic skill levels.
