Every year, more than 250,000 active duty service members transition out of the military, joining the 3.5 million post-9/11 veterans already living in communities nationwide. They face many challenges including isolation, weight gain, lack of purpose, and mental health issues. Team Red, White & Blue utilizes fitness and community to help veterans overcome these hardships.

30-Day Fitness For Mental Health Challenge
Participate to Improve Physical & Mental Health
Daily fitness and mindfulness have been essential in Alex’s experience to overcome the challenges of depression and train for his enormous feat. We want to share this knowledge and help people in all areas of life begin their own journey towards mental wellness.
For this reason we created the 30-Day Fitness for Mental Health Challenge that takes place during the month of May, Mental Health Awareness Month.
Participants can choose from Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Elite and Ultra-Elite fitness routines that anyone can complete in the comfort of their home with just their bodyweight.
Each tier of the 30-day challenge includes pull-ups, push-ups, squats and a daily 5-minute practice of mindfulness. Repetitions for each exercise are performed every other day.
Regular physical activity and mindfulness practices have been shown to improve anxiety and depression symptoms, along with reducing the risk for clinical depression.
Get ready for your 30-day challenge by donating as little as $1 and receive videos on how to regress and progress pull-ups, push-ups, and squats, along with tips to incorporate a 5-minute daily practice of mindfulness, and strategies to complete your challenge.
Repetitions for each exercise are performed every other day during May.

“I wrote to your parents to tell them how proud your old teacher from Upham is for your dedication and determination; so now I am telling you! I really admired your honesty, in the article in the Townsman; how you worked through your own depression and anxiety. You did it through a new mindset and fitness, and you were able to turn your life around ~ great to hear from a former teacher! Now you are helping others in a most significant way. I am giving this donation because I believe in you and always have. I will be away, so I cannot attend this event to raise money to improve the Mental Health of veterans.
