“As the entire nation honors past and present servicemen and women on Veteran’s Day, this November 11, our Club is particularly honored to be able to give back to the families of these courageous Americans in a unique and beneficial way,” says Scheiber, owner of Curves.
Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative spearheaded by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to mobilize all sectors of society to support service members and their families. Let’s Move! Is dedicated to addressing the obesity problem that is so prevalent in all corners of America today.
The IHRSA Joining Forces Network, an affiliation of health clubs offering free memberships to the immediate family members of actively deployed Reservists and National Guard members throughout the country, successfully merges the active lifestyle goals of Let’s Move! with the desire to provide support and services to military families through Joining Forces.
Through the IHRSA Joining Forces Network, immediate family members of actively deployed Reservists and National Guard from the Churubusco community are eligible to receive complimentary 6-month memberships.
“Under the guidance of our trained professionals, these families will receive great healthy lifestyle advice and training in a supportive environment. Our entire staff is energized and excited to extend our services to these families. We can only imagine how stressful it must be to have a loved one so far from home, so we are honored to help with their health, happiness and stress-relief in the ways we know best,” said Scheiber.
