NASHVILLE — The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Carry Forward 5K in-person event in Nashville on September 19 is shifting to a virtual experience.

IMPORTANT DETAILS AT A GLANCE

SAME event date: Saturday, September 19

NEW location: Wherever YOU are comfortable doing a 5K — your neighborhood, your treadmill, your favorite route or trail. You could even just count 7,000 steps by your phone! Most importantly, know you’re participating virtually alongside wounded warriors and WWP supporters in the Nashville community — together!

SAME cause: To continue to put the WWP mission of honoring and empowering wounded warriors in motion!

There are three special ways to show your support while you run or walk at Carry Forward:

  • Carry a flag to show support and patriotism
  • Carry a weight to represent the responsibilities veterans carry
  • Carry another person to symbolize one warrior carrying another.

No matter which activity you choose, every step you take will empower wounded warriors as they take on their next mission.

HOW A VIRTUAL 5K WORKS

REGISTER AND PLAN: Decide if you want to organize your 5K as a solo run/walk or with friends and family (6 feet apart, of course!), and ensure everyone registers. Plan out your 5K details including your location and fundraising goal.

RAISE MONEY: Check out additional fundraising ideas (like setting up your Facebook Fundraiser!) here to make the most of your impact.
PACKET PICK-UP: Packet Pick-Up drive thru will happen in Nissan Stadium’s Lot K on the 17th and 18th from 3 – 7 p.m.
GET READY & GO: You will be mailed an official Carry Forward SWAG kit packed with a drawstring bag, finisher medal, bib, sweatband, neck gaiter, and eye blacks. On Saturday, September 19, gear up and complete your 5K.
More information on the online experience will be coming soon! Questions? Reach out anytime here.
