CAL was founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland, who lost his life in Afghanistan, while serving in Operation Enduring Freedom, November 2009. CAL’s mission is rooted in his lifelong belief that through fitness, one can reach their highest potential both mentally and physically. CAL believes fitness is a personal choice, individual as each member. Choosing how and where to workout, offering options for coaching, accountability and mentors assures that each veterans unique needs are met.
Since our founding in 2010, the Catch A Lift Fund has helped thousands of post 9/11 combat wounded veterans regain their mental and physical health through gym memberships, in home gym equipment, personalized fitness and nutrition programs and a peer support network. Catch A Lift vets are seeing and feeling results including dramatic weight loss, reduction in medications, improved sleep patterns, and strengthened relationships with family and friends, thanks to their healthier lifestyle. Our veteran testimonials attest that CAL has “saved their lives”; the greatest impact of all.

To provide an avenue for our veterans and first responders to cope with the unseen (invisible) scars from their previous and continued service, through exercise and a strong support system. Whether these scars occurred during their service while on war campaigns on foreign soil or during their daily service in our communities. We believe that fitness and community can be a powerful means to get through life together.

May & June 2020
The human toll of the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is being felt throughout the nation and most acutely by the nation’s largest body of health care professionals – nurses. These nurses will deliver the vast majority of patient care as COVID-19 spreads across the country.
The Fund has four focus areas, which are based on information we received from tens of thousands of responses to the ANA COVID-19 survey, our town halls, and outreach from nurses to the ANA as well as state nursing associations. In addition to addressing the needs of nurses, the Fund is an opportunity for the public to support and show gratitude through a text-to-give campaign, individual giving and corporate donations.
- Provide direct financial assistance to nurses
- Support the mental health of nurses – today and in the future
- Ensure nurses everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection, and care for those in need
- Drive the national advocacy focused on nurses and patients
To share your thanks and support for nurses on the frontlines you can make a donation to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses.
