JUMP FOR VETS with RAGS OF HONOR 1 & GET ROPED™
We can’t change the whole world, but we can change the world around us.
Every day 22 veterans commit suicide.
Every year over 100,000 veterans are homeless for at least one night.
In Chicago, alone, there are over 800 homeless veterans.
The hardest part of service shouldn’t be returning home. Help us make a difference in the life of a veteran who struggles with PTSD and homelessness upon returning home from service.
On November 18th, at the United Center Atrium, join the Chicago Blackhawks, and the Blackhawks Ice Crew, Rags of Honor 1 and Get Roped™personal trainer, Rachel Jablow, as we jump rope to raise money in support of our veterans.
Rachel Jablow, a premier Chicago trainer, has been igniting the local fitness scene and the online-streaming fitness community with her legendary Get Roped™ method. Open to all fitness and (rope) skipping levels, Get Roped in to her music-thumping, heart-pumping, rope-jumping, full-body workout that will challenge your mind and change your body.
Special guest jumpers from a collection of Chicago’s sports teams including: the Blackhawks, Bears, Cubs and White Sox will be Getting Roped with us as we raise money with each jump.
100% of the proceeds will go directly to Rags of Honor 1, a non-profit (501c3) organization that provides employment and services to homeless veterans in the Chicago area. Show support for our veterans. Help us prevent veteran homelessness, PTSD and suicide. They had our backs…let’s JUMP to keep the shirt on theirs.
Come and Get Roped™ with us or just cheer us on!
