"We are on our way to making it possible for EVERY individual with a physical challenge to envision themselves as an athlete" Jeffrey Essakow, Board Chairman.
Our commitment to CAF stakeholders, partners, and overall community is to provide the greatest impact, stay true to our mission and remain accountable throughout all initiatives.
Since 1994, over $93 million has been raised and more than 18,000 funding requests from challenged athletes in all 50 states and over 40 countries supporting 97 different sports have been satisfied. CAF's outreach efforts reach another 200,000 individuals each year. Whether it's a $2,500 grant for a handcycle, helping underwrite a carbon fiber running prosthetic foot not covered by insurance, or making the introduction to a mentor who has triumphed over a similar challenge, CAF provides those with the desire to live active, athletic lifestyles every opportunity to compete in sports and physical activities.
