On behalf of Project VisAbility, Sport & Health Clubs, and diamond sponsor Myzone, we would like to invite you to participate in the second annual SWEAT for a VET event on Saturday, November 12th from 9:30AM – 12:30PM (EST) via LIVE video link!

You can host a SWEAT-a-thon at your own club location and be a part of the entire program simultaneously.

Being part of this uplifting event will be a great way to offer something new to your members and to introduce the concept of inclusive fitness in a unique and inspiring way. We will have various athletes on stage, both able bodied and those with various physical disabilities, and we will have speakers who have overcome physical and mental obstacles to fitness and triumphed over them. We will have a screen behind the stage highlighting these amazing athletes in action. We plan to have competitors from the US Paralympics and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and others who have excelled in their particular sports. There will be additional special guest speakers as well.

Another advantage of participating is that the SWEAT-a-thon location that raises the largest amount of money can choose to receive one of the following exceptional pieces of exercise equipment for your facility or to donate a Concept2 Rower and new Ski Erg, a Johnny G Krankcycle® by Matrix, an Invacare Top End Force 2 Handcycle! Shipping costs and any import taxes will need to be paid by the receiving SWEAT-a-thon facility.

For information and event highlights from 2010,  visit our SWEAT for a VET website. To sign up to host your own event, contact Debbie Miller at 301-873-0038 or email Debbie@ProjectVisability.org.

We look forward to “seeing you” on Saturday November 12, 2011 at the Tysons Sport & Health - Main Event Site or your SWEAT-a-thon location. If you aren’t able to host an event or join in person this year, you can still help this worthy cause by making a general donation or sponsor someone who is participating.

Sincerely,
Your SWEAT for a VET Team
