John Cena contributed greatly to the FitOps Foundation

In 2019, while appearing on The Ellen Show, John Cena announced a donation of up to $1 million to the FitOps foundation to help them achieve their goal. The foundation helps the veterans to become elite personal trainers by providing them with training and certification.

Cena said, “The work the FitOps Foundation is doing is having such an impact–they are saving lives by inspiring veterans to find new purpose through fitness, which allows them to then share their mission with others.”

Cena expects others will also provide support and help to the organization in the coming years. “I want to help the FitOps team reach their goal of helping as many veterans as they can, so between now and Veterans Day, I will match all donations to the FitOps Foundation up to $1 million,” he added in 2019.

That was indeed a noble gesture from the former WWE champion. That contribution has certainly helped the organization to develop its programs. They can now better educate and train the veterans about health and fitness by expanding their facilities.
