Memorial Day Event: Honor Our Heroes

May 3, 2019 | Events, News

We are pleased to invite you to the First Annual Resilient Fitness “Honor Our Heroes” Memorial Day Event. The day will include a Queenax competition and flag ceremony featuring and honoring the United States armed forces. During the festivities, attendees can spend time and share experiences with our troops. We will be joined by veterans, active military members, and young cadets who are the future of the armed services. Ticket holders will also be able to attend our most popular classes that day – Spinning, Pilates, Zumba, and Bachata.

The service members and their advocates in the community will have booths set up with information and giveaways. After the competition, a flag ceremony to honor all veterans and active military will begin at 11:45 AM. The American Veterans Division USNSCC will provide Color Guard Service during the ceremony.

Local Non-Profits

For the competition, Army and Navy teams will be participating in a Queenax challenge for prizes and for charity. The beneficiaries of Honor Our Heroes will be the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) and Stand Down. Both organizations are local to the Palm Beach area here in Florida.

First, the USNSCC “is a national youth leadership development organization that promotes interest and skill in naval disciplines while instilling strong moral character and life skills through leadership and technical programs modeled after the Navy’s professional development system.” Two programs are available for participants at the present time. The first program is for students 13 through 17 years old and the second one is a junior program for students 10 to 13 years old.

Second, Roy Foster and Donald Reed founded Stand Down in 1994. These two veterans created Faith, Hope, Love, Charity, Inc. to help address the “seen and unseen wounds of our veterans and military members.” The nonprofit organization is working to end homelessness in the veteran community.

Memorial Day

The Honor our Heroes event starts first thing in the morning, with registration opening at 7:00 AM and the competition starting at 8:30 AM. Participants will be competing in a Queenex Challenge for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Prizes for each team with 8 people per team. In addition, we are providing breakfast. Finally, the flag ceremony will take place after the competition.
