Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds of local students, military and civilians will exercise on the flight deck of the USS Midway to support San Diego's veterans. 

The event is hosted by Embrace, a non-profit whose mission is to bring people together and serve the less fortunate.

The Ex 4 Vets IV event takes place this Saturday, April 26, from 8:30 to 10 a.m.

About 1,000 San Diego college students, military personnel and civilians will exercise on the USS Midway. The event will consist of an hour-long fitness and kickboxing workout led by fitness guru, Cindy Whitmarsh. 

Goal is to raise at least $100,000 for homeless and disabled veterans through the Embrace The Streets program and Embrace's Healing Our Heroes' Homes program.

Embrace gives back 50 percent of net revenues to student organizations, ministries, active military and veteran groups that participate. Embrace gave back over $11,000 to participating groups at last years Ex 4 Vets event. 

Registration fee is $45 for all participants. For more information, visit: www.ex4vets.org
