Sarah Reinertsen Videos
KABC LA recently interviewed Sarah about the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) and how it was instrumental in helping her and is today helping many people gain better health and reach their athletic dreams and goals.
“CAF is a nonprofit here in California that actually serves people with disabilities around the world. They pay for those running prosthetics, they pay for my cycling leg. Anywhere from $15,000 to $35,000 out of pocket,” said Reinertsen.KABC LA interview
Sarah wants everyone with disabilities to be aware of the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation so that they too can get in contact with them if they want help in living a healthier lifestyle.
The Challenged Athletes Foundation is in its 25 year history and has raised over 50 million dollars to aid athletes with disabilities.
Inspiring others to do the same as Sarah crosses the finish line, it’s not just for her. It’s also for the little girls with disabilities like hers. USA Today talked with Sarah after her race in the Hawaii Ironman Kona race.
The Ironman World Championship is a cruel, uncompromising and unyielding examination of body and mind.
Don’t even ask about any concessions, however young, old, injured, or bone-weary you are. Or, in the case of Sarah Reinertsen, you’re trying to complete the whole darned, miserable thing, all 140 miles of it, as an amputee with a prosthetic leg.

If someone said to me, “look we can give your leg back”, I don’t think I would take it. I think the life I’ve led on one leg is far more exciting than the life I would have led with two normal legs.
