Challenged Athletes Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation’s Access for Athletes bridges the gap between physical rehabilitation and a return to an active lifestyle. The Foundation’s objective is to ensure that people with physical challenges have the same freedom to enjoy sports that the rest of the world takes for granted. The Foundation provides resources for adaptive sports equipment, sports prosthetics, training, and competition grants so that those with physical challenges can once again, or for the first time, participate in sports. Funding is provided for recreational as well as competitive and elite athletes. To be eligible, an athlete’s disability must be recognized within the International Paralympic Committee classification. The 2010 grant application will be available on Sept. 1, 2009 and applications must be postmarked by Dec. 1, 2009.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
