Virtual Fitness Challenge Aims to Motivate While Remembering Fallen Service Members
SPRINGFIELD, Va. (April 20, 2022) – Participants can now register for the Hope For The Warriors Memorial Day 30×30 Virtual Fitness Challenge. Kicking off May 1 and running through May 30, individuals can participate in the free virtual fitness challenge from anywhere in the world.
The challenge is designed to get people moving by incorporating any type of physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes for 30 days. Any activity counts — walking, running, hiking, swimming, lifting, etc.
The goal for this challenge is to support individuals reaching their fitness goals while honoring and remembering fallen service members.
Participants are encouraged to register for the free 30-day fitness challenge at hopeforthewarriors.org. Participants can log their daily activity through the website to maintain a cumulative total for the challenge. Twice a week, participants will receive emails that motivate, inspire and to share ideas to help sustain well-being.
For $30 a 30×30 Challenge t-shirt is available during registration. (T-shirt will arrive toward the end of the challenge). There is also an opportunity to sponsor a warrior for $30, allowing a service member or military family member to join the challenge with a t-shirt.
“We began our virtual challenges due to the pandemic but kept them going due to the popularity and ease of participation for military families to civilians across the country,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. “The Memorial Day 30×30 Fitness Challenge is a great time to get outside on your own or as a family and be active, while remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifices for our freedoms.”
