Have you dreamed about having your own sports wheelchair for basketball, tennis, cricket, racing or para dance? Apply now for a grant that could make it a reality!

The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) have opened their annual grant programme once again for 2021. Anyone around the world with a permanent disability can apply for support to play any sport or activity, at any level. 

CAF are particularly interested in grants that help people get started on their sporting adventure – that’s exactly what our wheelchairs do best. So, this is a great opportunity to find funding for one of our Multisport or Flying Start racing wheelchairs! 

In 2020, CAF have awarded 3,921 grants totalling $5.9 million to individuals with physical challenges in 103 sports across the world. You could be next!

To apply for a grant to buy one of our entry-level sports wheelchairs, select the Sport Expense Grant option.
