VOW — Veterans Operation Wellness -- is a new Spike campaign created to inspire veterans to make the same commitment to their health and wellness that they made to their country. We want to help veterans lead healthier lives through training and exercise, a better diet and engagement with the communities they live in. We also want to encourage civilians who want to support vets to get out and connect with them through physical fitness and local activities.
VOW is launching with the Veterans Wellness Challenge, a fundraising competition where our non-profit partners below are competing for $50,000 from Spike and Viacom. The three non-profits that raise the most between September 8th and October 13th will win the grand prizes. And each of these organizations has created amazing events you can participate in and raise money for.
Additionally, we will have a nationwide Day of Action on October 11th. Everyone who registers for the Day of Action will receive a 7-day VIP pass to Gold’s Gym, the number one name in fitness and be given the opportunity to dedicate their workout to one of our charities. Gold’s Gym offers the latest equipment and services, including group exercise, personal training, cardiovascular equipment, group cycle, Pilates and yoga. With nearly 3 million members worldwide, Gold's Gym helps all kinds of people achieve their individual fitness goals.
