Celebrating its fourth year, the Carry Forward Virtual 5K supports the life-changing programs and services - including mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitation care - dedicated to improving the lives of warriors and their families. Please honor the courageous men and women who have served in the U.S. military and consider participating in the Carry Forward Virtual 5K.

Whatever your preferred method, the WWP Carry Forward Virtual 5K offers a one-of-a-kind chance to:
- Honor family members, friends, coworkers, or neighbors who served in the military
- Help boost awareness of WWP and the many ways they support injured veterans and their families, and
- Help raise funds by soliciting donations from family, friends and coworkers to support your team.
Carry Forward is an opportunity for participants and warriors to focus on physical health and wellness -- and to connect wounded warriors with other veterans, supporters, and members of the community. In a 2020 WWP survey of the wounded warriors it serves, about nine in 10 warriors report having more than three injuries or health problems related to their service for our country.
Since 2003, WWP has been a tireless advocate for our nation's finest, improving the lives of millions of warriors and their families. WWP's mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
Every step you take and dollar you raise will help empower wounded warriors as they take on their next mission. Please help WWP continue to transform the way America's injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities.
