We love a good challenge!
We love challenges at PK Fitness which is why we're so excited to share what our friends at Legacies Alive are up to with their Cycle to Celebrate challenge. Legacies Alive is a nonprofit organization founded by combat veterans to strengthen and support families of fallen heroes. Their mission is to bring national awareness to Gold Star Families, those families who have lost a loved one in service to our country.
Earlier this year, two Gold Star parents set out on an epic 3,700+ mile ride across the United States to raise awareness and support for Gold Star families. After several months of riding, they are now 10 days away from their final destination, the World Trade Center in New York City.
Cycle to Celebrate
Kaye Jordan and Mike Perich, both Gold Star parents, started the Cycle to Celebrate challenge in San Diego back in June of this year. Three months and over 3,000 miles later, they are entering the final days of their journey.
An important part of the ride is connecting with other Gold Star families along the way to provide support, share stories, and keep the memory of their loved ones alive. With PK Fitness, supporters have the ability to interact directly to Mike and Kaye on the app and provide much needed emotional support for the team.
What's a Gold Star Family?
Gold Star Families are families who have lost a loved one in military service. The Gold Star first made an appearance during World War I after being placed over a service flag's blue star when a service member was killed in combat. The Gold Star signified the family's pride in the loved one's sacrifice rather than the mourning of their personal loss.
Legacies Alive's mission is to provide unwavering support to Gold Star families by ensuring the legacies of our Fallen Heroes are forever alive.
