Help End Veteran Suicide by Lifting Weight with LAC this Veterans Day!


Active Heroes mission is to support U.S. military service members, veterans and their families through physical, educational, and emotional programs providing coping skills in an effort to eliminate suicide. In 2014, 92% of your contributions went to supporting veterans and their families.

Active Heroes’ vision is to eliminate military/veteran suicide. Support programs include: Retreat Center, Community Center, Active Challenges, Home Repair Outreach, and Annual Scholarships.

On November 11th, Veterans Day, Active Heroes, LAC, CrossFit 927, CrossFit Jeffersontown, East End CrossFit,  and Movement Potential will work together to lift 22 Million pounds to raise donations and awareness to help end veteran suicide. The donations will go to help develop the Active Heroes Retreat Center where veterans from any state can visit for free. The Gym Partners and virtual participants can start on November 1st and total their weight lifted to support the weight goal.
