Kenilworth resident, fitness expert and West Point graduate Donna Calk knows that there is no better way to honor the men and women who have fought for this country than by helping them thrive upon their return home.  

Feeling called into action, Calk reached out to the Kenilworth Club and Wilmette’s Redefined Fitness, asking them to help her host a fitness fundraising event. Without a moment’s hesitation, both organizations jumped on Calk’s request, and on Feb 22, the very first fitness challenge took place.
