Put The Wounded Warrior Project® Mission In Motion At Carry Forward® 5K by becoming a volunteer!

The Wounded Warrior Project mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Carry Forward puts that mission in motion and allows participants to take action for wounded warriors. Volunteers are a critical part of what makes this event memorable and a success.

Join the movement and help make Carry Forward one of the most powerful, one-of-a-kind events participants ever experience.


We have been closely monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation nationwide, and have transitioned most Carry Forward events to a VIRTUAL experience where participants can run or walk the 5K wherever they are comfortable!

We strongly believe in the power of coming together virtually for our nation’s wounded warriors and are still in need of volunteers to help us bring together everything our participants love about Carry Forward. 
There are a few different ways you can choose to be a part of our event: 

  • ​​​​​​Join the Volunteer Committee: We need your help to make this event shine. From engaging companies to sponsor the event to generating awareness in your community, there are plenty of ways to lend a hand from the safety of your home.
  • Register as a 5K Participant: Find your city or choose the nationwide Virtual 5K option and walk or run a 5K wherever YOU are comfortable —  your neighborhood or on the treadmill at home. You could even just count 7,000 steps by your phone!
