A National Health Crisis in America
Though we are separated by distance, we are close by miles
Mental illness…Obesity...Chronic Illness. For the past 3 months we have experienced a shut down of our local gyms, the backbone of the fitness industry, in the greater part of the United States. In the foreseeable future, Gyms will reopen, but we will be separated by distance.
Lunge America - The Event
On June 20th, 2020, Lunge America has created a community effort to lunge across America to raise awareness for the important National Health Crises in our country that has plagued our nation for years now.
We encourage you and your local fitness community to take part in Lunge America in an effort to accumulate 2892 miles lunged in one single day. This is the greatest distance from any two mainland points in the United States.
2892 miles in one day?! Yes, just like overcoming mental health, obesity and chronic illness takes a village, it will take a community with a common goal to make a real difference.
Lunge America - The Workout
Lunge America presents opportunities for all fitness levels to participate in raising awareness for Mental Illness, Obesity and Chronic Illness.
