North Bergen resident, Grovert Fuentes, alongside Catch A Lift Fund rang the opening bell to start the trading day at the New York Stock Exchange on December 22, 2016. Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) enables post-9/11, wounded, Veterans to regain their physical and mental health by granting gym memberships, fitness programs, or in-home gym equipment. CAL serves over 3,000 wounded veterans and currently has over 500 on their wait list. Over 90% of every donation made to CAL goes directly to funding the veteran’s fitness and wellness programs. “Fitness helps many veterans whether it’s physically or mentally,” says Fit Lifestyle Box owner Grovert Fuentes. The relationship between Catch A Lift Fund and Fitness Lifestyle Box is a natural pairing. Fit Lifestyle Box offers a monthly door service subscription for $20 which includes a full-size product, supplements and product samples, and protein bars, chips, and much more.

“I hope FLB can work with CAL in the future to better the lives of many veterans. They’ve helped me and I’d love to help them in any way I can.”

Fuentes also happens to be a combat veteran who utilized the Catch A Lift Fund before volunteering to become a Squad Leader for the organization. “I’d call veterans in my squad to check up on their fitness journey and give them fitness advice to help them reach their goals.”

CAL was founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland,(KIA-Afghanistan-2009) and is rooted in his belief that through fitness, one can reach their highest potential both mentally and physically.
