This is where we, Johnny America Clothing, step in.

The physical side of fitness is not enough to keep us engaged. We need more. We need the brother/sisterhood that we experienced in our military careers.
This is where we, Johnny America Clothing, step in. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit that raises money to give veterans scholarships to a CrossFit affiliate of their choice. We know that CrossFit can help our veterans with physical and emotional issues developed during and after war because it has helped me with my own personal struggles, and we have watched it help the veterans that we have been able to sponsor, thanks to our wonderful donors. We believe that support is more than a yellow ribbon. We know that real support means giving veterans the tools and opportunities to reclaim their happiness and their respective lives. This Veterans’ Day, take the time to do more than simply saying, “Thank you for your service.” Help us share the CrossFit community with more veterans. Support veterans from the battlefield to the box!

You can make a donation or purchase JAC gear at JohnnyAmericaClothing.com. 100% of donations go directly into our veteran scholarship fund. You can also find out how to host a JAC fundraiser WOD at your box on our website. Even if you can’t donate you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@JohnnyAmericaCF), and Instagram (@JohnnyAmericaClothing). Twenty-two veterans a day are taking their own lives. With your help we are trying to change that number, one veteran at a time.

Heath Peters founded Johnny America Clothing with his wife Beth. He is a two-time combat veteran of the Iraq war and a CF-L1 trainer.
