The foundation was founded by Army Veteran Matt Hesse. Our role with Fit-Ops is broken into two parts. The first being the camps apparel. CNC Provides all of the apparel for the women going through the camp. We will be providing all of the Fit-Ops apparel for both men and women in the near future. The second being supporting the mission! What is that? Glad you asked. FitOps was founded on the belief that fitness is transformative to every aspect of our lives. To be humble and hungry for success in being our physical best is a mindset that can be brought into both personal and professional relationships.
We don't believe that any service member starts from scratch professionally when they enter civilian life--in fact, quite the opposite. FitOps is specifically designed to build on the fitness and leadership experience that veterans gained during their time in the service. The result is Certified Veteran Fitness Operatives (CVFOs) who guide themselves and their clients on a path toward being their personal best--in fitness and in life. CNC has donated over $20,000 to date to the Fit-Ops Foundation.
Kirstie Ennis Foundation
The foundation was founded by Marine Veteran and amputee, Kirstie Ennis. CNC teamed up with Kirstie to create the first pair of amputee leggings for left/right leg, above/below the knee. 100% of the proceeds from these leggings go towards the foundation. Kirstie also climbs for causes and CNC has donated over $10,000 towards the foundation and her climbs. Her foundations mission is to financially support deserving nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to improving the quality of life of others. They strive to provide education, opportunity, and healing in the outdoors.
Blue Line/Red Line
We have created a pair of leggings and sports bras that have a blue stripe and a red stripe that signifies fallen Law Enforcement Officers(LEOs), and Fire Fighters in the line of duty. We take a portion of the proceeds and donate to families of the fallen. To date, we have donated to over a dozen families both local, and nationwide.
Breast Cancer Awareness
Our Pink Leggings/Sports bras are released during breast cancer awareness month every year. A portion of the proceeds have been donated to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation and have been donated to families of breast cancer survivors! We have donated over $10,000 to date to foundations and families combined.
R.E.D. "Friday" Leggings
These leggings are just a basic RED color legging. But in the military community, the word RED stands for Remember Everyone Deployed. We wear the color RED on Fridays to remember those who are away from us and cannot be home with their families and friends. A portion of the proceeds from these leggings are put towards sending care packages overseas to deployed troops. We have sent over 500 care packages to date.
Operation Underground Railroad
CNC partnered with O.U.R. a little over a year ago. Our mission of women empowerment directly ties into the efforts of O.U.R. Their mission is to put an end to human sex-trafficking for good! Every month we donate $1000 to their mission and soon we will be coming out with our own YELLOW stripe leggings where the profits will be donated directly to Operation Underground Railroad. In their words "We've gathered the world's experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.'s Ops Team consists of former CIA, past and current law enforcement, and highly skilled operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.
Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins
