About this event

VETERANS DAY HERO WOD - CHAD 1000X

Veteran Suicide Prevention

 

Sara Wilkinson and GORUCK present the hero workout “Chad” - in honor of Navy SEAL Chad Wilkinson who took his life on October 29, 2018 due to the effects of numerous deployments, several TBIs, blast wave injuries and PTSD. Our goal is to honor Chad’s life and legacy and to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

Last year’s Chad 1000X event saw 4,500+ registered participants (with over $100K raised) looking to be a part of something greater than themselves. To not only bring awareness to the epidemic of suicide, particularly among veterans, but also to help be part of the solution through the support to the Navy SEAL Foundation and other veteran health initiatives. 

This year join us again in paying respect to Chad Wilkinson and all of those who have been lost to suicide, while also committing to try to change the number. Donate to the cause on www.chad1000x.com to receive your Chad1000x 2021 patch and t-shirt, then register here to join us at a live Chad event.

 

By showing up to this #CHAD1000X event, you will receive a special commemorative patch by a member of our team.
