)-- Defined Fitness announced today plans to donate their services by hosting a workout on July 4th, 2013 at 9:15 a.m. to assist service members who have been injured in the line of duty. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the nonprofit organization Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), and will support a full range of programs and services for this generation of injured veterans and their families.
Over 47,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.
WWP’s 18 programs and services are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.
The workout will be at Defined Fitness located at 11885 Perry Highway in Wexford and will start at 9:15 a.m. on July 4th, 2013. There is no fee to attend although donations for Wounded Warrior Project will be collected, and you do not have to be a member to attend. Also, Defined Fitness will be donating 10% of the profits from the sales of their Red, White, and Blue Recovery Shakes at the event. The workout is suitable for all fitness levels. If interested in attend call Defined Fitness at 724-934-2000 to reserve your spot or for more information.
