The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) raises money to help people with physical challenges pursue an active lifestyle through physical fitness and athletics. CAF’s mission is clear: give those with the desire to live active, competitive lifestyles every opportunity to compete in the sports they love.
Beginning on July 27th, at his own expense, he will begin a cycling sufferfest in the Pyranees and ending in the French Alps. Legendary cols will include Col du Tourmalet, Mont Ventoux, Galibier and the grueling ascent of Alpe d'Huez. By the end of the week, over 33,000 vertical feet of mountains will have been climbed beneath his tires.
"It is certainly a tall challenge, but one that pales in comparison to the challenges many CAF athletes face in overcoming physical disabilities and being able to afford the cost of equipment such as sports wheelchairs, handcycles, mono skis and sports prosthetics, and resources for training and competition expenses," Hackbardt said.
"By making a donation towards my fundraising goal you will provide individuals with physical challenges with the tools necessary to find success in sports — and in life!" Hackbardt added.
