BENEFITING: Catch A Lift Fund
Changing Bodies, Healing Minds, Saving Lives
By providing post 9/11 combat wounded veterans gym memberships, in home gym equipment, personalized fitness and nutrition programs and a peer support network, Catch a Life (CAL) is mentally and physically healing veterans one by one.
Heather specifically wants to enable those veterans whose rehab benefits have maxed out get access to the physical and social benefits that she sees every day as an acute care rehab therapist. Getting these vets into the gym not only benefits them with weight loss and healthier lifestyles, but benefits their sleep patterns, reduces the amount of medications they need, and improves their relationships with family and friends.
