Since 2011, Anthem Foundation has provided $1.3 million in grant funding to U.S. Association of Blind Athletes for the National Fitness Challenge initiative and has impacted thousands of Americans with visual impairments by partnering with 40 different agencies across the country. This year, USABA is joining forces with 17 regional partners to implement the 2018-2019 Anthem Foundation/USABA National Fitness Challenge in 13 states.
The goal of the National Fitness Challenge is to raise the physical activity levels of each participant to the level recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. USABA and its regional partners provide more than 450 blind and visually impaired youth and adults with opportunities to increase their physical fitness levels and live healthier, more active lives.
