Communities Nationwide Celebrate Veterans Day with Functional Fitness
6th annual WOD for Warriors fundraiser supports veterans nonprofit
This Veterans Day, hundreds of gyms across the nation will host the largest-ever WOD for Warriors, a functional fitness workout, to support Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) and the men and women who have served our country.
Every day, around 550 American service members leave the military. For them, the return to civilian life marks the start of something new. Some of these men and women return wounded in some way. Most face the challenge of finding a new job and learning new skills. Cutting across the military-civilian divide, all communities across America are increasingly facing an epidemic of isolation and loneliness.
“Since I founded Team RWB in 2010, we’ve been working hard to crack the code on overcoming that isolation – by connecting America’s veterans to their communities through physical and social activity,” said Mike Erwin, Executive Director of Team RWB. “WOD for Warriors is an opportunity to support veterans through functional fitness and we’re thrilled that over 350 gyms and thousands of participants across the nation are joining us this year.”
All proceeds support Team RWB’s mission while enabling community members to do more than say “Thank you” this Veterans Day.
