BENEFITING: CHILDREN OF FALLEN PATRIOTS FOUNDATION
CrossFit Metropolis is proud to support military veterans within and outside our family, and honor those who have given their lives for our freedom. This Memorial Day, we are raising money to help families who have lost such a hero.
Approximately 20,000 children have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. 97% of casualties are men, leaving behind single mothers to care for their families. Of those families, 60% report having trouble making ends meet.
The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every such child receives all necessary college funding. They are dedicated to serving the families of combat casualties and military training accidents as well as other duty-related deaths.
