I am so excited to finally run this fundraiser. For years I wanted to run a fitness test like the Marines Physical Fitness test I participated in when I was in high school. Now I get to run one, and also contribute to one of the greatest causes I can think of.
For the Fitness
- To me this fitness test will bring out all the kids and adults who want to test their fitness abilities.
- There will be 6 total tests of strength, stamina, and athletic ability, and everyone will be competing against each other.
For the Cause
All the profits we receive will be going to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which is an unbelievable program which serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. They create and support unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
I teach all my students the 10 pieces of the FIT Athlete Code:
- Be relentless and resilient
- Be prompt
- Be humble
- Be consistent
- Be honorable and honest
- Hold yourself accountable
- Be respectful and listen
- Be positive and patient
- Lead by example
- Stay focused
The people involved in the Gary Sinise Foundation follow this mantra and beyond, and I want to spend my life following this code the best I can. It takes humble, honorable and amazing people with courage to lead and set the example for everyone else, and I think we need more of that in our world.
Come join us on Saturday, October 21, 2023 between 2 - 5 PM at the Warren Health & Racquet Club at 149 Mt. Bethel Rd, Warren, NJ 07059.
