Put The Wounded Warrior Project Mission In Motion At The Carry Forward 5K

The mission at Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors — and Carry Forward is your chance to put that mission in motion at one of the most powerful, one-of-a-kind events you’ll ever experience. It’s a unique opportunity to take action for wounded warriors.

Participants can walk, jog, or run on event day and amp it up by selecting one of three special ways to show support for our nation’s bravest:


Carry a flag to show support and patriotism.


Carry a weight to represent the responsibilities veterans bear while serving our country.


Carry another person to symbolize one warrior carrying another in their time of need.
