Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) announced its plans for 2021, including a spring grant distribution, in-person and virtual fundraising events in October, and the launch of a weekly video interview series called “Heroes of Sport.”
Registration is open for CAF’s October signature events, including the Million Dollar Challenge cycling event on the California coast, the CAF Community Challenge featuring the San Diego Triathlon Challenge, and a weekend of community building and inclusive activities in San Diego.
The in-person events are being planned in careful coordination with local COVID-19 pandemic guidelines. CAF said it also looks to resume in-person cycling clubs in San Diego, Idaho, and Northern California in June.
“We look forward with hope and gratitude for the opportunity that 2021 presents. We know sports and physical activity are the keys to reloading our resilience, strength, and spirit.” Virginia Tinley, CAF chief executive director, told KUSI News. “CAF will continue to put our heart and soul into the challenged athletes and the community that helps make them stronger through sport.”
