Virtual Run Fundraiser
The Warrior 22 Challenge
Take the Warrior 22 Challenge! 22 Veterans a day commit suicide as a result of their service to the nation. Suicide rates among our first responders are similarly high. The Warrior 22 Challenge is a virtual running event sponsored by Warriors' Ascent, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps veterans and first responders with post-traumatic stress. We do so by running 5-day holistic retreats that provide our participants the tools to heal the mind, body, and soul through meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, self-care practices, cathartic activities, and community thus empowering our warriors to take ownership of their lives and healing. See www.warriorsascent.org for more details. All proceeds from the Warrior 22 Challenge will help fund our life-saving program which is free to all participants.
Format: Virtual. All races will be virtual, self-timed, and on the honor system. Do the miles on the course of your choosing, log the distance and time using your GPS or smart watch, and send us a photo or screen shot of your results.
Date/Time: 01 AUG 22 - 22 AUG 22. Run your race anytime during this window. Send proof of your results (screenshots of Garmin, Strava, etc) to our race coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
