Joining Forces Meets NASCAR

join forces

A big thanks to the many fitness professionals across the U.S. who have responded to the Joining Forces initiative, which unites fitness professionals and organizations nationwide to pledge 1 million hours of fitness-training services at no cost to actively deployed military reservists and National Guard members and their immediate families.


Tens of thousands of training service hours have been committed—with Sarasota, Fla.; Baltimore, Md.; and Brighton, Mass., taking the lead. We thank you for your ongoing support.

Also, a big thanks to ACE’s strategic partner, the President’s Council on Fitness, Sport and Nutrition, for their efforts.

On July 27th, the President’s Council invited NASCAR driver Carl Edwards to speak to 1,400 National Guard Family Support Volunteers and 10,000 attendees at a USO concert in Louisville, Ky., about the Joining Forces initiative and the importance of physical activity.

Edwards’ message was simple, “There are so many people volunteering, we hope that you’ll take advantage of these opportunities to be active.” The President’s Council said in a written statement that it hopes to build upon this momentum and expand on available resources.

We need EVERYONE to get involved to meet our goal! Pledge your support today.
