On October 19, attorney Frederick M. Dudek participated in the Challenged Athlete Foundation Triathlon for disabled athletes. During the cycling leg of the event, Dudek rode tandem with a blind friend, helping him participate in the competition even though he could not steer the bike himself.

The Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF) sponsors competitions for disabled athletes, many of whom are missing limbs. The organization helps veterans and accident victims accomplish physical goals while fundraising for important causes.
During this year’s CAF Triathlon, Frederick Dudek helped a blind friend finish the cycling portion by riding with him on a tandem bike. Dudek did the steering, but it took both riders to cross the finish line.
