The Catch A Lift (CAL) fund was founded in memory of Army Cpl Chris Coffland, who lost his life in Afghanistan, while serving in Operation Enduring Freedom, November 2009. CAL's mission is rooted in his lifelong belief that through fitness, one can reach their highest potential both mentally and physically. CAL believes fitness is a personal choice, individual as each member. Choosing how and where to workout, offering options for coaching, accountability and mentors assures that each veteran’s unique needs are met.
The Catch a Lift fund provides fitness grants to post 9/11 combat wounded veterans and has helped thousands of them regain their mental and physical health through gym memberships, in home gym equipment, personalized fitness and nutrition programs and a peer support network. Veterans have testified that CAL has “saved their lives”; the greatest impact of all.
Call me crazy, but I can’t imagine my life without having something to physically and mentally challenge me – whether it’s running, Spartan racing, or CrossFitting! I’ve been blessed by all 3 and am so thankful to be surrounded by amazing people who support and encourage me. I’m very excited to find an organization that supports 2 things I think the world of – veterans and fitness. Please join me in support of this incredible group by making a donation and helping me reach my goal to Run Disney for CAL!
Healing minds, changing bodies, and saving lives.
