First Ever Underwater Marathon to Help Heal Wounded Special Forces Soldiers
Troegs Brewery | September 9, 2012
Distances: 5K, 10K, Half or Full Marathon.
Why Can’t Our Elite Soldiers Receive the Same Quality of Care as Pro Athletes?
Pro athletes expect and receive the best in sports medicine. The Eagle Fund, a designated fund within the Andrews Institute Foundation, was created to provide our elite military athletes access to the Pro Sports Model at the world’s finest surgery, rehabilitation and sports performance facilities. The Eagle Fund’s swift and integrated approach returns elite soldiers back to SERVICE and to a high quality of LIFE
The Underwater Marathon — A Chance for YOU or YOUR COMPANY to Help Our Special Forces
- By sponsoring a runner or running in the Underwater Marathon yourself, you or your company can make an instant impact in the quality of life for wounded special forces and help them return to military service.
- Your individual donation will impact Eagle Fund participants directly and will help to bring dramatic improvement to the lives of our HEROES' military injury treatment.
Can YOU Run An Underwater Marathon? Don’t worry that you can’t run 3 or even 26.2 miles on land. On a HydroWorx underwater treadmill— literally anyone can do it.
Here’s why and how YOU can do it:
- Water’s buoyancy take away 80% of your body weight (a 200 lb. person is approximately 40 lbs. on the underwater treadmill)
- Water’s hydrostatic pressure helps remove lactic acid and metabolic waste by optimally "flushing" the lymphatic and cardiovascular system — so, you won’t be sore during or after!
- The Marathon pool for the event will be a perfect 86-88 degrees so the run will be both enjoyable and therapeutic
- The HydroWorx underwater treadmills have an adjustable speed control so you can pick your ideal pace.
Create Your Team to Reserve Your Treadmill Today! Space is limited and underwater treadmills for corporate and individual sponsorship are going fast!
