BENEFITING: Catch A Lift Fund
I never imagined I would be running a half marathon. But now that I am running in the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, I am very proud to be running for such a great cause.
Taken from the Catch-a-Lift website:
"Founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland, Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) enables post 9/11 combat wounded Veterans to regain and maintain their physical and mental health by providing granted gym memberships, fitness programs or in-home gym equipment, anywhere in the United States. If a veteran has an appointed VA certified caregiver, the caregiver is eligible as well.
In addition, CAL's M.A.P.S. Program ensures success by tracking progress and offers motivation, accountability and peer support through small squads of Veterans who heal together Vet to Vet. CAL Veterans are not only losing weight and moving away from obesity, but also eliminating the need for multiple prescription medications and finding their "new self". CAL Veterans are thriving, reintegrating, healing and saving each other's lives through newly established comradery; filling the void left after military service."
Please consider sponsoring me for this marathon, and helping our veterans!
