Welcome to Lift For The 22!
In March of 2015 Lift For The 22 began as a hashtag social media movement designed to encourage service members to connect and support one another in gym's all over the nation. Specifically, the program addresses the broken transitional system and aims to limit veteran struggles thereby limiting veteran suicides. After being contacted by a local gym owner, the Lift For The 22 movement became more than a hashtag, but rather a movement to provide veterans with one-year gym memberships across the country. On July 23rd 2015 Lift For The 22 provided the first 3 veterans of the program with one-year gym memberships at Workout Anytime in Beaverton Oregon. Since July 2015, over 300 Veterans have now received one-year gym memberships in a growing movement to end veteran suicide through transitional support. The Lift For The 22 program is all about having an outlet, building yourself up, and then being connected with a peer-to-peer support network of veterans who assist one another in the transition from military service.
This program can only exist with YOUR HELP!
With your support via donations, and clothing sales we can continue providing veterans with gym memberships all over the nation. Lift For The 22 is a 501c3 non-profit organization that can provide you with an eligible tax write-off for your donation. Without your support, the military community will continue to return home to a broken and difficult to navigate transitional system. Please donate today and consider becoming a monthly contributor to our mission so that we can save veteran lives one gym membership at a time.
