Chad Crittenden, Survivor, Motivational Speaker

cabanamt kiliThanks for visiting my remodeled website! This site has been newly refurbished and not only covers what I've been doing since being on CBS' Survivor but all kinds of other more recent endeavors as well. In recent news, I had the privilege of being a featured speaker in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

I'm excited to share an even more recent invite, as I was asked to present at TEDx SDSU. Please see below to view this video.

Along with showcasing a few of the things I've been up to in the last few years, my wish is that amputees visit and be encouraged in some way, much like I was early on as a new amputee reaching for inspiration. I found much of that inspiration through stories of others on the internet. If you happen to be a member of the elite group of us who have a fake leg or other limb, check out Amputee Resource Depot. This tab has information about my strategies as an amputee, and please peruse the Links tab to delve further. I have modernized and upgraded many of the components you see here, so look for updates to this page soon.

If you're looking for straight Survivor stuff - that is here too, as well as what I've been doing as a speaker, author and athlete. If you have any questions ranging from specifics about prosthetic components to what events are coming up, feel free to drop me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

CAFrica - Mt. Kilimanjaro 2012

caftLogoOne recent endeavor took me abroad - this time to Africa! I was part of an expedition to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa which launched August 20th, 2012 as part of the CAFrica group. Our expedition raised over $140,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) which is a wonderful organization, and one which I've supported for years.

I would like to give thank my Major Sponsors for the CAFrica expedition: Knit-Rite, Freedom Innovations, and GoPro. A significant donation has been given by these generous companies and their logos are at the bottom of this page. To donate to the Challenged Athletes Foundation, please click here: Chad's CAFrica Fundraising Page.
