HIIT For Heroes Party, a Veterans Day Celebration

“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of their strength, but by the strength of their heart.” ~ Hercules


SO GRATEFUL for all the amazing men and women who got their sweat on at the Sweat for Smiles HIIT For Heroes this past Monday night, in support of The Heroes Project. Over 30 Sweat for Smilers came to this fabulous fitness event at Equinox Sports Club NY for Tabata by Tracy Gordon, an incredibly inspirational speech by GM of Equinox and amputee veteran – Charlie Linville, healthy bites by Owyn Bars, bubbly courtesy of BABE Wine, mingling with other fitness enthusiasts, favors, raffle prizes, and more. Just in case you missed the party, here are some party highlights.

The Heroes Project

100% of the donations from HIIT For Heroes went to support The Heroes Project, an incredible charity which empowers amputee veterans to climb the highest peaks.

Charlie Linville, GM of Equinox and amputee veteran (below), talked to attendees about his experience fighting for our freedom as well as The Heroes Project. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate Veterans Day.
