Life is a team sport.

 

We rally our community to empower athletes with physical challenges to unleash their potential. Together, we can redefine what’s possible and enable Idahoans of all abilities to practice, play, perform, and compete at their best. So let’s lift, push, race, climb, throw, carve — and keep breaking barriers. We’ll unite through sport to fuel momentum, go the distance, exceed expectations, and drive Idaho forward.

 

In Idaho, CAF will collaborate with local community partners to:

> Fund grants for adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses
> Provide adaptive sports clinics
> Host community events to grow a strong community of supporters and challenged athletes

 

 

To launch the program, CAF-Idaho will fund 15 individual grants to athletes residing in all corners of the state and who participate in a wide variety of sports from alpine skiing, wheelchair basketball and cycling, to rock climbing, track and field, triathlon and wheelchair rugby.

To learn more and get involved,  contact Jennifer Skeesick, CAF Idaho Regional Director, at jennifers@challengedathletes.org
