IDAHO — The Challenged Athletes Foundation kicks of Giving Tuesday with a "Do 20, Give 20" charity campaign.
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
CAF is asking that you do 20 reps of any physical activity and then donate $20 to their foundation that is raising money for 2021 grants for their athletes to get adaptive equipment.
"We love seeing the creativity that people come up with because Do 20 Give 20 is really do 20 of something. It can be 20 of pushing your chair. It could be 20 minutes of running 20 pushups just really what speaks to people," said Jennifer Skeesick, CAF-Idaho Executive Director.
Here’s how it works:
- Do 20 reps, 20 minutes, 20 intervals, 20 jumps.. be creative!
- Share a photo or video of your physical activity on social media and use the hashtags #CAFDo20Give20 #GivingTuesday2020 to get your friends and family involved.
- Once you’ve completed your 20, print out this sign [challengedathletes.org] and share photos on social media!
- Give a minimum of $20 online, and the impact could double! www.donatecaf.com [donatecaf.com]

"Our athletes still need that support, and we want to make sure that we are taking care of those financial barriers, so all of this is so important to us," said Skeesick. "It's just a neat time for us to blend things that we love and that's physical activity and sport and giving out grants."
