We sometimes take our active lifestyles for granted, but for a number of individuals even the simplest functions can be a monumental task. Thats why we are involved with the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) and partnered up with this great organization earlier this year. The mission of CAF is to improve the quality of life for people who have a suffered a physical disability. By working with and encouraging these individuals through a variety of sporting activities such as marathons, swimming, cycling and others, CAF helps promote selfesteem and independence, as well as improving their quality of life.
Last week CAF held the annual A Celebration of Heroes, Heart and Hope gala dinner in New York City, an inspirational event that spotlights challenged athletes and how they overcome disabilities. The record $1.4 Million contributed by generous donors will provide hope and opportunity to challenged athletes in the United States and countries around the world.
We celebrate these brave individuals and take our hats off to them. Their drive and determination to rise above is inspiring to us all.
