About Us - Straight Up

Lift For The 22 is an organization designed to provide free one year gym memberships to the veteran community in order to reduce veteran suicide. By partnering with fitness facilities across the country who donate gym memberships to Lift For The 22, our program can redistribute thousands of gym memberships to the veteran community every year. More gyms = more memberships available. Lift For The 22 aims to provide fitness as a new transitional tool for the veteran community.
