Catch a Lift Fundraising - Disney Wine and Dine 2017
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jan 01, 2018
The Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) is a 501c3 non profit charity that raises money to provide post 9/11 combat disabled veterans with gym memberships, in home gym equipment, fitness and nutrition programs, and a peer support network.
Founded in 2010, CAL currently has over 2,700 wounded veterans in the program and is in all 50 states. Due to the incredible successes our veterans experience after only 12 months in our program (weight loss, dropped medications, reduced depression and suicidal ideations, improved relationships with family and friends) the Catch A Lift Fund now receives close to 150 applications per month from veterans and has a wait list of over 600 combat disabled vets, many who have waited months to begin their fitness regimens with CAL.
It costs CAL approximately $1,000 to place a single veteran in the program for a full 12 months. With 90% of every single dollar donated going directly into the veteran fitness programs, CAL can always tell a donor how many veterans they have funded and provide updates on these veterans improvements as they go through the program.
