veteran suicide prevention - chad 1000x - date 11/11/2021 

FROM GORUCK: 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 and support Veteran Mental Health Initiatives.

Join us in paying respect to Chad Wilkinson and all those who have been lost to suicide, while also committing to try to change the number.

We encourage you to get a group of any size together to do the workout on the date of your choosing between Nov 5th - 13th. Veterans Day is November 11th.

What’s worth living for?

what’s worth living for? 

Our "Why" board remains empty still. So I began to wonder if just maybe not everyone understood it's true purpose. I started to think about what might be holding people back from putting things up - then I realized - maybe I'm explaining it incorrectly...

I realize that the reason "why" most of us train is to better ourselves and our chances of survival from an attack. I am sure that most people, therefore, were thinking, "I don't want to post a picture of myself on the "why" board." But instead of thinking about it that way - think instead - that if you train to survive - "WHY?" What is worth living for? WHY do you want to train to survive? Why, what, or who do you live for?

Perhaps these questions are easier to answer. And perhaps we will start seeing more items added to the board. That way when each person walks through the doors to the training floor - can see the reasons WHY we live.

Thanks everyone.
