In a year that has changed how we work together, sweat together, and come together as a community; Vega’s beliefs stay the same. We believe that everyone is an athlete, and that every athlete should have the opportunity to access resources to be the best they can be.
That’s why when our partners, the Challenged Athlete Foundation® (CAF) – the world leaders in helping people with physical challenges lead active, healthy lifestyles – couldn’t host their flagship fundraising event as they have for the last 26 years, we saw an opportunity to motivate our community to be the best they can be, while helping others.

What is the 2020 CAF Community Challenge & how does it work?
From August 8 to October 18, the 2020 CAF Community Challenge, presented by Vega, will bring together communities to run, cycle, swim, walk and move millions of miles to raise millions of dollars. This 10-week challenge will include fundraising and community building events featuring virtual mileage tracking, community activities and workouts.
All miles logged on Strava (or other fitness platforms) can be completed anytime and anywhere by running, walking, rolling, swimming, cycling, fitness classes and more. Leaderboards with real-time results will track global progress and highlights of the challenge – time to get competitive for good!
