A Celebration of Heroes, Heart and Hope will raise much-needed funding so physically challenged athletes can overcome the economic roadblocks to participation in sports and live their dreams. Money raised at this inspirational evening will be used by CAF to provide adaptive equipment (such as running feet and handcycles), training and support to deserving physically challenged athletes across the United States -- and around the world.
At the event, CAF will showcase the courage, perseverance and inspiration of four CAF supported athletes like New York’s own Sam Cila (An American hero, joined the New York National guard after September 11 and was injured in Iraq on the July 4, 2005, continues to heal through sports), David Gelfand (Born with PFFD, the same condition as Sarah Reinertsen – his idol, this young Weston, Connecticut native offers hope to other physically challenged kids), Deanna Babcock (A competitive athlete her whole life, she was devastated when she lost her leg. Now with a new running foot, she’s back into sport, and back into life) and Ricky James (When a motocross accident went horribly wrong, he lost the use of his legs, but not his competitive spirit).
Salute these CAF-supported athletes and many more… Rub shoulders with celebrity guests and sports legends… Bid on one-of-a-kind silent and live auction items… The Celebration of Heroes, Heart and Hope promises to be a great evening -- for a great cause.
