I am so excited to be participating in the 1st Annual Green Beret with a Mission Challenge. As part of this event, I am raising money for Veterans and I will also be participating in the event in memory of a fallen soldier from NH. Please help me reach my fundraising goal. Any amount will make a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families. The money that is raised will go to worthy Veteran service organizations both locally and nationally. Go to www.swimwithamission.org to learn more about the organizations that Swim With A Mission supports. Since 2017 Swim With A Mission has donated over $6 million for Veterans through a variety of events including this swim event.
Green Beret With A Mission Challenge
Our 1st Annual Green Beret With A Mission Challenge to honor our Veterans will take place on Friday, July 9, 2021. This charity event is designed to give adventure athlete teams, including from a Crossfit or other sports background a test of endurance while providing a taste of the physical and mental challenges Army Special Forces soldiers face in accomplishing some of their real-world missions. It will be a fun, challenging event led by Army Green Berets!
This event is a cooperative effort between Swim With A Mission, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting Veterans services and the Patriot Resilient Leader Institute, also a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which runs outdoor therapeutic retreats for military personnel, veterans and First Responders.
Teams must have a minimum of 5 members up to a maximum of 10. The registration fee is $50 per person. Also, teams are encouraged to fundraise to the best of their abilities since all the proceeds go to programs that serve military, veterans and first responders. More details about fundraising are below.
What’s Included in Your Registration Fee:
· Leadership and Team Building activities led by Army Green Berets
· All equipment needed to complete the challenge
· Water & snacks on the course and a BBQ meal after completion of the challenge
· A Green Beret With A Mission Challenge patch
The ultimate physical, mental, and teamwork challenge! Each team will negotiate a course with multiple stations where they will be required to complete Special Forces mission tasks that will challenge them physically and mentally. Teams in each category that complete the course the fastest and having the highest score will receive awards and prizes. After completing the course, each team is invited to enjoy a BBQ meal and mingle with Army Green Berets (and hear some “Special Forces stories” if so inclined!). This is a truly unique and fun opportunity for endurance, crossfit, and adventure athletes!
More details will be shared closer to the event, but each team will be assigned a starting time and an Army Green Beret soldier who will accompany them on the course. Awards and prizes will be presented at the closing ceremony at the end of the competition. If teams decide to not stay or return for the closing ceremony, their awards and prizes will be mailed to them.
