The ride leaves from Trek of Highland Park on August 27th, 2011, there is a 25 mile and a 50 mile route, both routes give you the opportunity to meet and support the athletes who are directly effected by the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Established in 1997, Challenged Athletes Foundation®(CAF) grew out of a desire to assist one athlete paralyzed in a triathlon. From this modest beginning arose a more important mission to make sure people with physical challenges have the same freedom to enjoy sports as everyone else.
- CAF, inspiring athletes of every level and every age.
It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.
