You are being asked to participate in a research study to look at the possible relationship between Camaraderie Based Exercise Events and Depression, Anxiety and Pain. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete the following survey. This study has no known risks but does involve physical exercise and exertion. You agree that you are medically clear to exercise in such an activity by your medical doctor. Although you will not benefit directly from participating in this study, you will make a major contribution to the information known about group based exercise events and anxiety, depression and pain which may benefit others in the future. Your participation in this research is completely voluntary. You may also stop your participation at any time. If you do not want to participate or withdraw from the study early, there will be no penalty. This study seeks subjects from the general population and those that are serving, served or planning to serve in the armed forces. We will use the information in the future to develop guidance for the Medical community, Department of Defense and the Veterans Affairs. Operation Vet Fit (OVF) will keep a record of all surveys in a secure database. Only the researcher will know the identity of study participants. The surveys you complete in this study will not be used or distributed for any research other than this project. OVF will only keep your identifiable information such as name and contact information indefinitely and may contact you for further follow up research. If you feel that you have been injured as a direct result of participating in the study, or if you have any other questions about your participation, please contact Daniel R. Gaita, MA, LMSW at 203-994-2987 or via email: Your completion of this survey means that you understand the information presented, and that you want to participate in the study.
