Take action to honor wounded warriors
and their sacrifice. 

The mission of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Now you have the chance to put that mission in motion and bring the WWP Carry Forward® Virtual 5K, delivered by CSX®, to your own community. Every step you take and dollar you raise will empower wounded warriors as they take on their next mission.

There are three special ways to show your support while you run or walk at your Carry Forward Virtual 5K:



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.

How a Carry Forward Virtual 5K works.


You’ll choose the location and date — July 4th, Veterans Day, or anytime of year that works for you — and decide if you want to organize your 5K as a solo run/walk or with friends and family (6 feet apart, of course!).


Register as a solo participant or form a squad. Plan your 5K details including date, location, and fundraising goal.


Reach your fundraising goal by asking friends and family to give or join in as a participant. Be sure to tap into these creative fundraising ideas to make the most of your impact.


Within 3-4 weeks after registering, we’ll mail you an official Carry Forward swag kit complete with a drawstring bag, race medal, bib, sweatband or rally towel, and eye blacks.

We’ll be by your side from start to finish. Reach out to us anytime here
