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 your own community or neighborhood. Every step you take and dollar you raise will help empower wounded warriors as they take on their next mission.
You can walk, jog or run your 5K anywhere on any day, and amp it up by selecting one of three special ways to show your support for our nation’s bravest:
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.
You’ll choose the location and date — Memorial Day, July 4th, 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. Registration is $35 for adults, $15 for kids 6-17, and free for kids 5 and under. WWP Alumni, veterans, and active duty military are eligible for promotional and discounted rates.
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 for iPhone or Android to make the most of your impact.
Within 3-4 weeks after registering, we’ll mail you an official Carry Forward participant 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.
