This Holiday Season you can give the gifts of self-reliance, independence, self-confidence, and enhance the quality of someone's life.

Your donation to Challenged America will give a disabled veteran, adult or child with a disability all of these and much more.

Tammy 'The uncertainty that came with vision loss left me fearful about the future, and feeling that a normal life would be impossible. Sailing has restored my self-confidence, given me a sense of freedom and adventure I never knew I had and taught me that anything can be possible no matter what your ability is.

'Learning to sail and be in control of a boat, making it dance across the sparkling bay and hearing the splash against the hull has turned me into a graceful ballerina. This is my show now and vision loss is just a bit player waiting in the wings.'
- Tammy
