What is this event?
Wednesday, 7/27/2016, is the ACTIVE HEROES Pound challenge. The Pound Challenge is a fundraiser where participants attempt to lift 22 million pounds (collectively) in order to encourage the public to donate to the charity. It symbolizes the 22 veteran suicides per day, and the significant amount of emotional weight our veterans carry. LAC has committed to lifting 1000/lbs for every dollar we raise.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Active Heroes is a charity that contributes over 80% of its profits DIRECTLY to Veterans and their Families. Their vision is to use healthy activities and retreats to promote mental health and wellness. It ties into LAC’s vision of a healthier body, healthier life, and healthier mind. This event is a great way to unite and show our love for this country! Most Americans can agree that giving back to our Veterans is an act of integrity, kindness, and patriotism. LET’S JOIN TOGETHER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
