Honoring Our Heroes - 9/11 Event 

HONORING OUR HEROES is on Saturday 9/11/21. There will be no classes that day and we hope you will join us for this very special occasion. The event will challenge you but you will also learn about that fateful day, you will learn how to fight, how to use common objects as weapons, how to save lives… We will honor the fallen and at the same time have a great time. Because that’s what they would do if they could. So mark your calendars as you don’t want to miss this one. Every participant will earn this spacial 20th anniversary patch. And of course we will be making a donation - all net profits will go to support the great work of the Operation HomeFront.

REMINDER: Upcoming Chad 1000x 

SUICIDE PREVENTION AND AWARENESS EVENT:


Veterans’ Day is November 11, 2021 and it’s time to register and start training for CHAD 1000X.


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 by raising 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, especially among veterans, but also help be part of the solution through support to the Navy SEAL Foundation and other veteran mental health initiatives.

This year, join us again in paying respect to Chad Wilkinson and all those who have been lost to suicide, while also committing to try to change the number. #CHAD1000X
