The Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that helps combat injured veterans recover, rehabilitate, and regain purpose through CAL’s four core pillars: Nutrition, Fitness, Emotional Wellness and Community. CAL was founded in 2010 in honor of Cpl. Christopher Coffland, U.S. Army, killed in action, Nov. 13, 2009, Afghanistan.
My gym is hosting a Coffland Hero Challenge to raise funds for CAL’s mission and the veterans it supports. Signing up is easy, and participants who donate at least $40 receive a CAL T-shirt or tank. Registration without a shirt is a donation of only $25, and donations of any amount are welcomed and encouraged for non-participants interested in supporting a great cause. You can support my fundraising efforts by joing my team and registering for the Coffland Hero Challenge or just by donating.
Sponsorship and support by local companies and organizations is welcome. Please contact CAL’s Coffland Hero Challenge Coordinator Rachel Forbes at email@example.com or 240-439-0885 to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
My gym will be running the Coffland Hero WOD, a six minute cumulative hang from a rig or pull up bar, but with each drop, we'll run 800 meters and complete 30 push ups. Adaptive, modified, scaled and partner version of the workout are available.
