Veterans and College Athletes Together (V-CAT)

V-CAT is a free health and wellness program hosted at the University of Delaware for post 9/11 Veterans. The program utilizes the University of Delaware's content experts and student-athlete volunteers. During the 12 week program, the Veterans are paired up with student-athletes to attend two workouts and wellness classes on campus per week. The Veterans become a part of our extended UD community, an important aspect to their reintegration back into civilian life. This program provides a healthy environment for Veterans to heal their visible and invisible wounds of war. We hope to expand this program to colleges and universities across the country.
