Project LOD

LOD.jpg

LOD: (Pronounced L.O.D.) Also known as the “Line Of Departure”, is a military term for the starting line a military force is ordered to cross at a certain time to coordinate an attack on enemy positions.

While veterans may no longer face the actual rigors of wartime, the physical and mental adjustments and transitions into “civilian life” may prove to be just as daunting.

One of the more significant lapses in a veteran’s transition from service to civilian lies within maintaining a standard of physical fitness. While there are some who remain motivated enough to take care of themselves, the vast majority find themselves falling into bad habits, lacking motivation to remain consistent, or sadly, not being able to afford a gym membership.

These new “enemies” have the potential to degrade not only the physical health, but also the mental health of our veterans and service men and women.

Through Project LOD, Wild Horizons CrossFit is proud to be the forefront of functional fitness for America’s Bravest!

Operation LOD is a sponsorship program established by Ryan Garcia, the owner of Wild Horizons CrossFit in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Ryan is a Marine Corps Veteran with 5 years of active duty service, and 7 years of inactive-reserve service.

As a CrossFit gym owner, Ryan has particular interest in providing his services for active military members, reserve military members, and most significantly, retired veterans.

Ryan currently offers a discounted rate of $90 a month for veterans for unlimited CrossFit classes.

Any service member on active duty orders may work out for FREE while they are in the area.

The ultimate objective of this project is to establish relationships with high profile donors who are willing to cover long term membership costs so Ryan can offer veterans to workout at his gym for FREE!

In order to support this initiative, Ryan is asking for various businesses and third parties to contribute tax deductible, monetary contributions to the cause.

While the primary use of funds will be to cover the cost of veteran memberships, the secondary application of sponsored funds will be used to cover special equipment needs to support the influx of new members, contribute to events that support the mission of Project LOD, and cover other operational expenses of Wild Horizons CrossFit.

In exchange for sponsorship, Ryan wishes to establish a good working relationship with donors, and has plans to support their individual business efforts through various means.

Below is a list of sponsorship packages for the initiative:

Note: Ryan is willing to work with potential sponsors if they wish to make their own package, or have other ideas in which their sponsored funds can be reciprocated.
