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 for more details. All proceeds from the Warrior 22 Challenge will help fund our life-saving program which is free to all participants.
