My Gym Challenged America (MGCA) accepts applications from or on behalf of children with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities and those coping with chronic illness. Requests, limited to gifts of $500 or less, may include but are not limited to: rehabilitative therapy, assistive devices, medical equipment and sensory items.
Gift allocations from the My Gym Challenged America Foundation are determined by our Appropriations Committee based on greatest need, whom we can best assist, funds available, and long-term impact on the child’s quality of life. The Committee meets on a monthly basis to make the difficult decision as to how many candidates we can help.
All requests to Challenged America will be acknowledged via email or telephone.
Please review these guidelines before filling out an application:
- Applicants must be under the age of 18.
- Requests may not exceed a cost of $500.
- Please specify items needed and where they can be purchased. Because of the overwhelming number of requests we receive, we are unable to research and select items for the applicant.
- It is not our policy to give monetary gifts. MGCA directly purchases all equipment and services.
