Kennedy Club Fitness raises funds for Ride-On’s Veteran’s Express
During November’s ‘Thank a Vet’ Month, Kennedy Club Fitness is raising funds through membership sales and featured classes for SLO County’s Ride-On Veterans Express Shuttle. “The Veteran’s Express provides monthly transportation for close to 200 local vets, getting them to needed appointments and services”, says Greg Shearer, director of Veteran’s Express and a member of Kennedy Club Fitness.
Kennedy Club Fitness is also providing free guest memberships to active and inactive military and their families now to Thanksgiving. “I was moved when I learned that up to 30-percent of the combat vets from the Iraqi and Afghanistan conflicts have Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder,” says Kevin Kennedy, CEO of Kennedy Club Fitness. “A consistent exercise program has shown to have dramatic effects on PTSD symptoms. We’re trying to help with that first step and hope many will take advantage.”
In addition to the free guest memberships, Kennedy is also offering to all who join in November, military or not, free dues for the rest of the year.
“Not that people need the enticement to be generous, but it can’t hurt,” Kennedy says. “In the end, it’s all about everyone working together to make SLO County the healthiest place in the world”.
