Join the CAF Strava Community


Support athletes with physical disabilities by joining CAF’s global Strava community.


CAF’s mission to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics, is intricately tied to the challenges of our time – a global health pandemic, a devastating financial crisis, and ongoing social injustices. These challenges create even greater barriers for individuals with physical disabilities. To change this reality, it will take all of us.

Why Donate

The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) helps people with physical disabilities by providing access to the adaptive sports equipment and programming needed to participate in sports and physical fitness (typically these items are not covered by insurance). CAF is focused on empowering lives through sport. In 2020 alone, CAF provided individual grants to 3,921 individuals globally for adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses. Your support will ensure CAF can continue our impact in 2021 and beyond.
