Knowing that in 60 days we will be at the 2012 IDEA World Fitness Convention™ (July 5–8 in San Diego) with you celebrating three decades as an association and charting our course for the future is hugely exhilarating—but also a bit daunting. For us, the daunt factor is the realization that 30 years have passed since we founded IDEA, and we’re not sure where they went! The 60 days part is manageable—it’s an annual pre-event adrenaline drill that the IDEA Tribe uses to ramp up as the event approaches.
For many years, IDEA has been a supporter and an advocate for the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF). Several of our Inspiration Award recipients through the years have been CAF people whose stories of determination and triumph have moved and inspired us incredibly.
We probably all know an individual or a family with a loved one who serves or has served in our country’s armed forces. Some of you even have lived or are living the life first-hand. Soldiers are deployed to uncertain circumstances, while their families continue with life at home—counting the days until their soldiers return. Soldiers and their families sacrifice much and ask little.

Americans love to center holidays around food and Independence Day is no exception.
Whether your plans include camping, a neighborhood barbeque or community festivities, you can bet that there will be plenty of grilled, fried and sugar-laden treats. As with any holiday, the key is to be mindful of your consumption—taste a little of everything, but balance it out with activities.
We all have experiences that make profound impressions on us and change the way we approach family, friends, business and life in general. If you’ve never attended the IDEA World Fitness ConventionTM, we would like to suggest you consider it a true game changer.
