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 to the streets of San Diego.

With ever-changing guidance around COVID-19, we had to make the difficult decision to keep the San Diego Carry Forward 5K as a virtual event this year in order to ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers, and supporters. That means that this year, you get to support warriors on YOUR terms.

You pick the DATE, you pick the PLACE.

We’ll provide resources to keep you carrying strong. Plus, registration is FREE so you can focus on what matters most—rallying your squad and raising funds to honor and empower wounded warriors.

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



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.

How Carry Forward San Diego Virtual 5K Works


You’ll choose the location and date — September 11th, Veterans Day, your birthday, 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.


Register as a solo participant or form a squad. Plan your 5K details including date, location, and fundraising goal. To show our appreciation for the San Diego community, registration is FREE for all participants in 2021. Let’s make this our strongest year yet!


Reach your fundraising goal by asking friends and family to give or join in as a participant. Be sure to download the Carry Forward 5K App 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, bib, flag, medal, and more to get ready for your 5K.

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


“As the son of a veteran, I am proud to work with Wounded Warrior Project and give back to the men & women of our armed services, when they need it most!”
