ActiveX Charity Challenge 2012: Challenged Athletes Foundation
Get Your Fundracing On!
It's ActiveX Charity Challenge Season! This year, we're excited to partner with Challenged Athletes Foundation. CAF aligns with our goal of connecting people with the things they love, want, and need to do by helping disabled athletes acquire the gear they need to participate and complete in sport. Their stories will certainly fuel our fires as we train ourselves to compete in the ActiveX Solana Beach Triathlon, Dualthon, and 5K Challenge. Here's to the multiplying of active people!

The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) is a 501c 3 non-profit organization that provides funding and support to physically disabled individuals so they may pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that participation in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.

At Active we believe in CAF’s mission and also feel that being and staying active changes people’s lives, which is why we have taken on this ActiveX Challenge. The ActiveX Team will all be training together and changing our own lives while also working together to change the lives of challenged athletes with your support. By making a donation to our page you will be helping challenged athletes like Kaela Cruz (story to follow) get off of the sidelines and onto the playground and to the starting line.

At only five-years-old, when other kids were worrying about learning how to tie their shoes, Kaela faced a far more insidious challenge. Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. She beat the cancer, but to save her life, her leg was amputated above the knee. Her charm and grace were on full display when she took the stage at the first CAF Heroes, Heart and Hope Gala in 2006, where a promise was made... when Kaela was ready, CAF would make sure she had a running foot. Five years later, at our New York running clinic, that promise was honored and Kaela received that foot from CAF and Ossur and is now taking the next strides to overcoming her limitations. Click the button below to watch Kaela's story and experience the joy that you provide.
