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.

“Even while serving as a SEAL, Chad took time to scale up to the Expert version. There is zero shame in starting Slick, or with Standard weight, or in sharing the steps with a friend.” -- Sara Wilkinson
All proceeds of the CHAD 1000X fundraiser will go to support Veteran Mental Health Initiatives. 50% of the proceeds will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation and 50% will pass through the GORUCK Foundation to The Step Up Foundation (0% allocated to overhead) which, in conjunction with Sara Wilkinson, will provide financial support to other nonprofits dedicated to Veteran Mental Health initiatives.
