This week on Spotlight On Maryland, Gina Crash spoke with Lynn Coffland, the Founder & President of Catch A Lift Fund located in Lutherville/Timonium. Since 2010, Catch A Lift Fund has provided 8,500 + fitness grants and programs to Combat Wounded Vets all over the U.S.A. Through those granted fitness programs nationwide, Catch A Lift is mentally and physically healing veterans one by one.

Lynn's brother, Army veteran Chris Coffland, was killed in Afghanistan in November 2009. The name of the organization comes from an expression Chris used to say when he was going to workout. He would say he was going to "Catch A Lift." 

Gina wrote this blog on the 19th Anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Featuring an organization who has helped thousands of post 9/11 combat wounded vets is a way to honor them and never forget. 

The photo of Gina and Lynn was taken on July 5, 2018 when Lynn first visited the Entercom Baltimore studios for an earlier interview. This time due to COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing, Gina and Lynn spoke on the phone.
