Put The Wounded Warrior Project® Mission In Motion
At The VIRTUAL Carry Forward® 5K In San Diego

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 San Diego on August 29 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.


  • SAME event date: Saturday, August 29
  • NEW location: Wherever YOU are comfortable doing a 5K — your neighborhood, your treadmill, your favorite route or trail. You could even just count 7,000 steps by your phone! Most importantly, know you’re participating virtually alongside wounded warriors and WWP supporters in the San Diego community — together!
  • SAME cause: To continue to put the WWP mission of honoring and empowering wounded warriors in motion!

A Movement We Can All Be Part Of

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.

How a Virtual 5K works.


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 or rally towel, and eye blacks. On Saturday, August 29, 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
