Since 2011, NextGen has supported the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), a 501-c3 non-profit organization based in San Diego, California. CAF provides grants each year to athletes with physical disabilities stemming from a variety of causes – birth defects, cancer diagnoses, accidents, acts of war, terrorism, and more. CAF sees sports and mobility equipment for athletes as necessities, not luxuries. To that end they provide grants to pay for items ranging from triathlon entry fees to prosthetic limbs. Through their participation in sports, disabled athletes are empowered and encouraged in their recovery and rehabilitation. Starting in 2011, CREA began gathering a group of 30-40 friends and associates (Team NextGen) to participate in the San Diego Triathlon Challenge for the benefit of CAF. Team Coastline has raised more than three-quarters of a million dollars for this charity, empowering the recipients and building team spirit.
