It’s that simple.

and amazing sports packages, such as Tour de France and the World Series.

Provide a brighter future.
The Grand Ballroom at the Waldorf=Astoria will be filled with innovators and achievers – whose drive, accomplishments and success mirror the athletes they are there to support. Sponsors and attendees include leaders from some of the world’s leading financial houses, hedge fund managers, real estate and business professionals, leaders in publishing and high-profile consultancies. Many are endurance athletes themselves who recognize and admire the dedication and “never quit” attitudes exemplified by CAF-supported individuals.
Challenged Athletes Foundation understands the importance of sport and its ability to build self-confidence, discipline and empower the human spirit. Funds raised through HHH provide the bridge between the will to succeed and the access to the equipment, training and skills needed to do so for individuals with physical challenges. It can be as daunting as completing an Ironman with one leg, riding 620 miles down
the coast in a handcycle, or playing baseball with the other kids. Our goal is to help people with physical disabilities accomplish the challenge that is set before them and live
life to the fullest by providing mentoring, clinics and support programs, as well as
removing the barrier of expensive equipment and training and competition costs.
