What is the Catch A Lift Fund?
Founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland following his death in Afghanistan in 2009, the Catch A Lift Fund's mission is to provide combat wounded veterans with personalized fitness, nutrition and wellness grants, enabling them to heal through physical fitness and mental wellbeing. Since its inception in 2010, the Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) has provided over 5,000 fitness grants to wounded veterans across the U.S. Along with gym memberships and adaptive home gym equipment, CAL provides personalized workout plans dependent on the veteran's goals and injuries, peer support networking and Fitness Career Education Courses for veterans who wish to further their fitness commitment and give back to other vets in the program. To date, veterans in the CAL program have lost weight, dropped medications, increased their overall feelings of wellness, re-established relationships with family and friends, and re-integrated themselves into their communities through fitness.
