What

WOD for Warriors is a workout held on Veterans Day at gyms and boxes across the country. All proceeds from this event go directly to supporting Team Red, White and Blue, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity.

Why

Veterans Day has been observed since 1954 by the U.S. and its origins date back to Armistice Day 1918, which marked the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front in WWI. Veterans Day preserves the historical significance of the 11/11/1918, but also focuses attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. WOD for Warriors is held yearly on the 11th month, 11th day and 11th hour to celebrate the service of all U.S. military Veterans in a meaningful way within their own communities.

The North Shore Veterans Collaborative (NSVC) is a group of veterans and organizations which are working to increase awareness of veteran needs and support programs to help every veteran, family member and caregiver access the resources that meet their needs at any given time. We're also committed to increasing community awareness of the role of veterans in the North Shore area. Thus far more than 20 organizations are participating including the VA, YMCA of North Shore, State Sen Tarr, State Rep Parisella, Veteran Service Officers, VFW, American Legion, Endicott College and Team Red White Blue.
