The Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit 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.
Lightning Fitness is hosting a Coffland Hero Challenge on Friday, November 19th at 5:00pm 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. Click 'Join Team' to register!
Sponsorship and support by local companies and organizations is welcome. Please contact CAL’s sponsorship lead, Jessica Drew at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
We'll be running the Coffland Hero WOD:
- a six minute cumulative hang from a rig or pull up bar, but with each drop,
- run 800 meters and
- complete 30 push ups
Adaptive, modified, scaled and partner versions of the workout are available.
More information about CAL and its mission can be found at www.catchaliftfund.org.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, November 19th at 5pm! [Location: 85 Nutmeg Rd South, South Windsor, CT 06074]
