Veteran Fitness Conference: VetXpo
Fort Worth is the home of the exciting new veteran fitness conference, VetXpo (www.vetxpo.com), hosted by charitable organization, GallantFew. The mission of VetXpo aligns perfectly with the trending initiative to support veteran jobs and veteran wellness.
VetXpo was developed as a means for establishing personally relevant beliefs and courses of action that maintain critical balance and enable veterans to generate thoughtful solutions in alignment with their core values. VetXpo does this through the knowledge and inspiration of the veteran community’s most inspired thought leaders, passionate service providers and relevant trend setters. VetXpo is a place to engage with ideas and each other.
The conference organizer is a veteran-serving nonprofit GallantFew, Inc. ( (EIN: 27-1779772), led by a volunteer committee, with a home base in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. A 501(c)3 since 2010, GallantFew focuses on a holistic approach to helping veterans transition from military service to civilian life.
GallantFew’s Executive Director says, “We are proud to bring this resource and opportunity to Dallas/Fort Worth. We are excited to provide a conference where the community learns and grows together through ideas, inspired thoughts and specific calls to action.”
The inaugural VetXpo is a marquee event (formerly the Raider Project Transition Seminar), which expects to attract 200 attendees and thousands of video views online. This year is going to be bigger and better because:
- 8 strategically selected keynote speakers
- Partners with experiential and engaging opportunities
- Verses and Curses tour stop with Leo Jenkins
- Spartan Pledge Ceremony with Boone Cutler
What Can You Expect?
- Experience two days of connection, growth and camaraderie
- Hear from veterans who have navigated a successful transition and community members who support them.
- Meet employers and service organizations with initiatives for veterans and families to connect and prosper
- Learn about opportunities to volunteer
- Receive boundless information to connect with your purpose
- Opportunity to attend various functions to network
The VetXpo started because we set out on a mission to bring veterans together and equip them with the necessary tools to transition successfully. This conference is for any service member that is separating within two years, a veteran that is still in a transitional period, caregivers, spouses and service providers. GallantFew serves veterans in any branch from any era.
VetXpo inspires excellence in veterans and our veteran support community by providing locally and nationally-recognized thought leaders, wellness gurus, diverse perspectives and a platform for sharing important messages. The VetXpo 30-minute TED-style presentations directly correlate to balance within at least one of GallantFew’s STAR (self-training and response-ability) model’s five functional fitness areas (Physical, Social, Emotional, Spiritual or Professional). To get an idea of the type of presentation you will experience look at our archive photos from the Raider Project transition seminars.
During intermissions all in attendance will enjoy engaging and experiential opportunities to learn more about community services, marketplace trends, question and answer sessions, new to market products and more! Rather than provide answers to specific questions, VetXpo seeks to cultivate the exploration of issues central to the Veteran transition process, cultural identity, and accountability. It is intended to spark introspection, create connection and encourage action among attendees.
