Challenged Athletes Foundation celebrates 25th anniversary
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego-based nonprofit Challenged Athletes Foundation is celebrating 25 years of raising money for the adaptive sports community around the country and around the world.
The foundation began when its co-founders learned that health insurance doesn’t generally cover sports equipment for those with certain mobility needs. So they began raising money to gift such equipment to people in need around the country.
Amputees are the largest group to receive grants from the organization, which includes a special program called Operation Rebound for veterans and first responders.
KUSI’s Dave Scott takes a look at the nationwide impact of the foundation in this Special Report.
