Deadline is October 12, 2018. To learn more, click here.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation provides opportunities and support to people with physical challenges so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence, and enhances quality of life. The foundation’s Access for Athletes program is designed to reduce the financial impediments to participation in sports, ensuring that challenged athletes are not left on the sidelines because they can’t afford expensive equipment or training costs. Through the program, grants will be awarded to physically challenged athletes for the purchase of equipment such as sports wheelchairs, handcycles, mono skis, and sports prosthetics and/or to help cover the costs of training and competition expenses. Grant amounts will average about $1,000. Deadline is November 2, 2018. To learn more, click here.
