Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Catch a Lift (CAL) non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization, provides fitness grants in the form of gym memberships or home fitness equipment to post 9-11 injured veterans throughout the United States.
CATCH A LIFT started in 2010 as a memorial to Cpl. Chris Coffland and founded on his lifelong philosophy that through physical fitness you can achieve your highest potential for a healthy mind and body.
His dedication and mindfulness to physical fitness was part of a daily regimen his entire life. He actively encouraged others to participate as well, so that they could lead a healthier and well balanced life.
Everyday Coffland would say "I'm goin' catch a lift"; his way of saying, he was off to the gym. In keeping with Coffland's commitment to fitness and his dedication to the wellness of others, CAL will assist wounded veterans to become physically and mentally fit again through gifted gym memberships.
Catch A Lift (CAL)helps wounded post 9-11 service members start and maintain their healing process, both mentally and physically, through physical fitness by providing them with gifted gym memberships or home gym equipment, anywhere in the United States. We believe each veteran wants to and can actively contribute to his or her own physical and mental health journey. CAL veteran participants have thrived by starting their road to fitness. CAL has brought fitness to hundreds of post 9-11 Iraq and Afghanistan combat wounded veterans throughout 49 states nationwide. By filling this need and through our program's proven results, CAL membership has grown over 1500 veteran participants. From CAL's inception veteran's caregivers have been of utmost importance as well. Some veterans who suffer from severe post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, or other debilitating injuries, require the assistance of a VA certified caregiver. CAL will pay for the caregiver's gym membership as well.
