    CAF invites you to invest in our legacy as we prepare for the next three decades.

    This year, an anonymous donor will generously match every dollar raised at this event to $2M. Securing $4M ensures athletes with physical disabilities can continue participating in the activities they love with those they love most for years to come.

      OUR NEED

      Millions of individuals living with physical disabilities do not have access to the critical adaptive sports equipment and programming needed to be active. In 2023, the CAF grant program experienced:

      • 20% increase in equipment costs
      • Record number of grant applications received

      Your support is critical to continue current programming and clinics to allow for further expansion in the SoCal region and beyond.


      CAF’s mission provides opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence, and enhances quality of life.
