Supermodel Kate Upton joined the Marines! But just for a workout.
Upton attended a Tuesday event called Workout with the Marines, put on by the Wins for Warriors foundation. The workout was put on to gain publicity for Wins for Warriors’ Detroit Marine Week. Upton’s fiancee, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, founded Wins for Warriors. The foundation’s site claims to have given over $1 million to nonprofit organizations for veterans since founding in 2013.
She, along with a group of other spouses of Tigers players (the “Tiger Wives”) ran through burpees, traveling push-ups, prisoner squats, toe touches and more, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Detroit Marine Week (September 6-10) will honor members of the Marine Corps and families of USMC members with community outreach activities in the Detroit area, according to the Free Press.
Marine Week will be marked by the first annual Patriot Ruck walk on September 9.
