Based on valued input from our participants and in accordance with the guidance of health authorities, our Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Carry Forward 5K in-person event in Nashville on September 19 is shifting to a virtual experience! We’re working full speed ahead to make this event shine and are bringing everything you love about Carry Forward to this new experience.
There are three special ways to show your support while you run or walk at Carry Forward:
Carry a flag to show
support and patriotism.
Carry a weight to represent
the responsibilities veterans carry.
Carry another person to symbolize
one warrior carrying another.
No matter which activity you choose, every step you take will empower wounded warriors as they take on their next mission.
Decide if you want to organize your 5K as a solo run/walk or with friends and family (6 feet apart, of course!), and ensure everyone registers. Plan out your 5K details including your location and fundraising goal.
Check out additional fundraising ideas (like setting up your Facebook Fundraiser!) here to make the most of your impact.
We'll mail you an official Carry Forward SWAG kit packed with a drawstring bag, finisher medal, bib, sweatband, neck gaiter, and eye blacks. On Saturday, September 19, gear up and complete your 5K.
We’ll be by your side from start to finish. More information on our online experience will be coming soon! Questions? Reach out to us anytime here.
