ITU World Champion, “The Amazing Race” star and CAF Athlete Sarah Reinertsen to lead Team CAF at the Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon.
The Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon, one of the featured events in the Life Time Triathlon Series Race to the Toyota Cup, has announced a new partnership for 2011 with Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), a world leader in empowering physically challenged athletes to find success in sports — and in life.
Established in 1997, Challenged Athletes Foundation provides opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. PHLYTRI athletes who register to join Team CAF receive a race entry and VIP benefits including a CAF triathlon uniform, training t-shirt, race belt, water bottle, access to VIP hospitality tent hosted by Philadelphia Insurance Companies and more. To register for Team CAF at PHLYTRI or for more details, visit TeamCAFPHLYTri.kintera.org.
Team CAF will field a team of ambassador athletes at the PHLYTRI lead by Sarah Reinertsen, 2009 ITU Paratriathlete World Champion and the first woman on a prosthetic leg to finish the Ironman World Championship in Kona. Reinertsen, who also starred in CBS’s Emmy award winning TV series “The Amazing Race”, will be joined in Philadelphia by other CAF athletes including Scout Bassett, Willie Stewart and Nick Roumonada.
