JACKSONVILLE, N.C. – Participants can now register for the Hope For The Warriors Memorial Day 30×30 Virtual Fitness Challenge. Kicking off May 1 and running through May 30, this virtual and free challenge J on individual’s physical and emotional well-being while honoring and remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving.

The free challenge is designed to get people moving by incorporating any type of physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes for 30 days in a row to show their commitment and support to the military community. Any activity counts — walking, running, hiking, swimming, lifting, dancing, etc.

Twice a week, participants will receive emails that motivate, inspire and to share ideas to help sustain well-being.
