Gordon & Holmes’ Fred Gordon recently participated in the C-AFRICA ride in South Africa support of the Challenged Athletes Foundation. A total of 38 cyclists rode approximately 620 miles in nine days traveling from Jeffreysbaai to Cape Town. The trip, which also included a Safari in Botswana’s Okanvango Delta, raised $350,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) is a world leader in helping individuals with physical challenges get involved – and stay involved – in sports. CAF believes that participation in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life. Since 1994, morethan $40 million has been raised and almost 7,000 funding requests from challenged athletes in all 50 states and dozens of countries have been satisfied. Additionally, CAF’s outreach efforts reach another 60,000 individuals each year. Whether it’s a $2,500 grant for a handcycle, helping underwrite a carbon fiber running foot not covered by insurance, or arranging enthusiastic encouragement from a mentor who has triumphed over a similar challenge, CAF’s mission is clear: give those with the desire to live active, athletic lifestyles every opportunity to compete in the sports they love.
