Establish permanent memorials by raising sets of pull-up bars to honor fallen service members while
encouraging physical fitness in communities across the United States.
Founded by a former United States Marine, Pull-Up Bars for Patriots was born out of a desire to pay tribute to fallen service members in a unique way. The fallen service men and women whom these bars honor knew the importance of physical fitness, determination and dedication. When a set of pull-up bars go up, it honors the fallen, while encouraging you to do pull-ups, even just one, in remembrance.
Pull-Up Bars for Patriots is raising the first set of bars in conjunction with the Wheaton Park District in remembrance of LCpl. Nicholas Larson. Nick Larson was the cousin of a dear friend of Pull-Up Bars for Patriots. The bars will be placed at Rathje Park in Wheaton, IL, a park Nick played in as a child before entering the Marine Corps after high school. Honoring Nick has helped start a movement and a cause to honor many, hopefully all, fellow fallen service members across the United States. Pull-up Bars for Patriots wants to honor those who have sacrificed the most to make sure they are not forgotten.
