Dear Community Leaders and Supporters:
In your community, and likely among your members, there are those who have lost a loved one or friend in military combat. Won’t you join us as we honor those from our area who made the ultimate sacrifice and the veterans who fought to defend our freedom?
I am challenging fitness centers across the region to participate in the Wheels4Change Remembrance Fitness Event on Feb. 28, 2016. The easy-to-implement event raises money for Wheels4Change veterans outreach programs. Wheels4Change is a 501(c)3. Its mission is to Honor Fallen Heroes, Support Military Families, and Serve Our Veterans.
By holding an event at your facility, participants can honor the fallen and support veterans by riding, running, swimming –or doing any other fitness activity — for two hours in memory of hometown heroes who lost their lives while serving our country. In addition, the Remembrance Fitness Event is an opportunity to build camaraderie among your members, while increasing awareness of your club in your local area!
Wheels4Change will be providing an educational presentation for all the participating clubs to show during the event. In addition, we will be contacting local media to help build awareness of the event, the mission and the fitness clubs who are participating.
If you are interested, we will share all the planning details to make your participation easy and fun. Your club is welcome to follow our format, or modify it to fit the needs of your particular membership. Your fundraising effort will directly support local veterans in our ‘Give Back’ program.
I hope you join us in supporting this important cause.
Founder and Executive Director
