Virtual Fitness Challenge Aims to Motivate While Remembering Those Who Died on 9/11
SPRINGFIELD, Va. (August 25, 2021) – Participants can now register for the Hope For The Warriors Patriot Day 30×30 Virtual Fitness Challenge. Kicking off Sept. 1 and running through Sept. 30, individuals can participate in the free virtual fitness challenge from anywhere in the world.
The Patriot Day 30×30 Virtual Fitness 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 virtual challenge is to support individuals reaching their fitness goals wherever they reside while honoring and remembering those that lost their lives on 9/11.
In addition, the challenge will call attention to National Suicide Prevention Month with September 10 World Suicide Prevention Day. During the challenge Hope For The Warriors will speak to its mission to end the stigma around mental health as well as highlight the work that the organization and its partners are doing to prevent veteran suicide.
Participants are encouraged to register for the free 30-day fitness challenge before or by August 31 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 promote mind, body, spirit, connectivity, and overall personal well-being.
For $30 a 30×30 Challenge t-shirt is available during registration. (T-shirt will arrive at 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.
“All yearlong we aim to bring awareness to those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those who continue to serve as a result of this tragic day,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. “Together, we aim build a community of understanding as we learn about the causes of veteran suicide and ways we can protect each other — and our own mental wellness — through 30 minutes of daily mindfulness, physical fitness and staying connected.”
