This summer, Hope For The Warriors joined New Balance in engaging communities around the country through the New Balance Fitness Challenge. The Fitness Challenge is a one-day fitness event for kids ages 6-13 and takes place in seven cities across the country. New Balance professional athletes lead the kids in fitness games and activities, promoting movement for the next generation.

Hope For The Warriors volunteers and staff members attended the Fitness Challenges in Houston, Washington DC, Chicago, Boston and New York City. Over 700 HOPE military families were invited to participate in these five locations, in leiu of the Military Child Initiative, an initiative to support military children and their families through physical health and wellness, community, and social connection.

For the past two years, New Balance has partnered with HOPE to run a Memorial Day camo baseball cleat campaign and has made a donation for each limited edition cleat sold. Hope For The Warriors would like to thank and recognize New Balance for not only the great work they do to promote fitness in the community, but for the incredible support they show our nation’s service members, veterans and their families.
