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® 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. Amp it up by considering one of three special ways to show your support for our nation’s bravest:

 

Flag

Carry a flag to show
support and patriotism.

Fitness

Carry a weight to represent
the responsibilities veterans bear
while serving our country.

Fierce

Carry another person to symbolize
one warrior carrying another
in their time of need.

“I organized a Carry Forward Virtual 5K at the recommendation of a peer who participated and had a great experience. WWP was helpful and made coordinating my event a simple and impactful way to give back.”
