2019 Battle for the Badge – Vestal, NY
Signup Deadline: August 2nd
Early Bird Deadline: June 16th (Tickets $135 – $150 full price)
Battle for the Badge is an annual fitness competition hosted by GSR FIT to bring the local fitness community together in support of Returning Warrior, a project dedicated to bringing awareness to the issues faced by our veterans coming home from a warzone.
US Army defines a badge as a military decoration issued to soldiers who achieve a variety of qualifications and accomplishments during their service. GSR FIT has created the Battle for the Badge to honor the US military while challenging all of the teams to see:
WHO WORKS HARD ENOUGH…
WHO IS DEDICATED ENOUGH…
And… WHO IS TOUGH ENOUGH….
ABOUT RETURNING WARRIOR
The Returning Warrior is a project of the Broome County STOP-DWI Program and is in support of the Southern Tier Veterans Support Group (STVSG) held to heighten awareness about service member’s transition from the dangers of warzone driving to the new risks they face on our public highways here at home.
ABOUT GSR FIT
GSR FIT is all about “Maximizing You.” This isn’t just about how much weight you can lift or how fast you run —it’s about creating a healthier, fuller life and learning to push yourself to discover—to realize how much unlimited potential is stored up inside of you!
