WHY WE SUPPORT CAF: For the 15th consecutive year we are raising funds and awareness for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). Participating in sports has been life-changing and life-affirming for both of us. CAF helps people with physical challenges get the training, equipment and inspiration they need to live life to the fullest. Since 1994, over $147 million has been raised and more than 40,000 funding requests from challenged athletes in all 50 states and over 40 countries supporting over 103 different sports have been satisfied. CAF’s outreach efforts have reach an estimated 20,000,000 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.
With the support of generous friends and family Lamar and I have raised or donated more than $ 75,000 for CAF. We invite you to donate to CAF today through "Team Pay It Forward." Just hit the "DONATE NOW" button to the right.
BUT WHY STOP THERE? YOU TOO CAN EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF HELPING OTHERS WHILE STAYING FIT YOURSELF by training for and joining TEAM PAY IT FORWARD for the 2023 CAF Community Weekend, slated for October 20-23 in Mission Bay, California. Over the years our team has had a blast at CAF's annual event. We've participated to inspire others and to help CAF give those with the desire to live active, competitive lifestyles every opportunity to compete in the sports they love. Just hit the "Join Team" button to start your CAF Journey. You can swim, bike, run, spin, walk, do yoga or do it all. You can even participate virtually! Join us!!
WHY DONATE? If each one of our friends and family donates to our campaign for CAF, we'd be well on the way to putting flexible prosthetic legs on a wounded warrior or a protective services officer injured in the line of duty or a little kid or a teen or college student or a mom or a dad or a single, a senior or a stroke or cancer survivor so they could run around like you and me. Of course, any amount large or small is going to help this great cause. To learn more, watch our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t42EqkSq25g
WE'RE DONATING TOO: We've kicked off our 2023 campaign for CAF with a $ 3500 donation of our own and we're so committed to CAF's mission that in addition we're making annual contributions to the Pay It Forward fund we have established with CAF!
HELP SPREAD THE WORD: You can also help by spreading the word about our campaign to your family and friends! We need your support! If you asked your family and friends to support CAF and they asked their friends to do the same....that's a lot of legs and handcyles and cycling arm extensions and basketball/ski/hockey chairs and training clinics!
Thank you for your support!!
