Patriots in Costa Mesa Push For Healing, Mental Health for Veterans
How many pushups can you do in 90 seconds? That’s what our friends at Recoup Personal Training challenged patriots to do at the 11th Annual Pushups for Charity Event, benefitting Boot Campaign!
Hosted at their studio in Costa Mesa, CA on Armed Forces Day, their clients, sponsors and the greater community push-upped their way past their fundraising goal of $15,000 during the family-friendly event.
As shared from the team at Recoup, “The struggle transitioning from active duty to civilian life for those who have served is truly real. Their careers take a physical toll on their bodies, some far worse than others but then there are the invisible wounds – TBI, PTSD, other mental health issues, and the struggles with finding their identity and purpose outside the military. Some navigate all this while having to be the provider for their family.
“It’s essential for them to have a solid foundation to come home to, but that’s not often the case. Boot Campaign prioritizes the health and wellbeing of these heroes through their incredible programs. We couldn’t be more proud of partnering up with them and raising much needed funds again this year.”
