CAF-SoCal offers clinics, programs, grants, and community events to individuals with physical disabilities, while also supporting families, encouraging volunteers, and appreciating our supporters. These opportunities not only provide access to sports but also foster a sense of community, allowing individuals to meet others. A variety of sports clinic opportunities are hosted throughout the year in the Northeast region to give individuals with a permanent physical disability the opportunity to learn a new sport or improve their skills.

The San Diego Triathlon Challenge (SDTC) has brought athletes of all abilities together at Mission Bay to celebrate the transformative power of sport.

The event has changed lives, shattered perceptions about disabilities, and raised crucial funds for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), empowering individuals to lead active and fulfilling lives through sports. The SDTC continues to inspire with its unwavering dedication to pushing boundaries and demonstrating the incredible potential of human spirit and determination.
