Athletes for CARE

Created by Athletes for Everyone

Founded by former professional athletes, A4C is uniting athletes as one voice to advocate for research, education, and compassion when addressing important health issues. We are the only non-profit organization empowering legendary athletes from every sport to use their influence to improve global standards of health, safety and quality of life.

Athletes for CARE (A4C) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization with a community of athletes finding support, opportunity and purpose in life after a career in sports by using their influence for social change.  Founded in 2016 by passionate people who recognize the need to advocate for the health, safety and wellbeing of more than 2 billion people of all ages who compete annually in sanctioned sports globally. Through that advocacy, we are improving health and wellness options for the billions of people around the world living with mental and physical illnesses including chronic pain, depression, anxiety, PTSD, CTE, TBI, substance abuse and opioid dependency.
