Athletes for CARE funds research for better solutions to physical, mental and emotional issues athletes face after a career in sports. By understanding these issues better, we can improve the experience for the over 2 billion people of all ages worldwide who compete annually in a sanctioned sport. Many of these issues also impact billions of non-athletes worldwide. We are grateful to our athletes who share their experiences which allow us to better understand solutions for patients everywhere.
