Event Description

What is Warrior Surf?

Warrior Surf Foundation is a non-profit located on Folly Beach that uses activities and initiatives like yoga, surf instruction, wellness sessions, and community to assist with post-service transition challenges. Those challenges include psychological disabilities like PTSD, moral injury, survivor’s guilt, and TBI, as well as physical disabilities. They also offer their services to active service members who need it.

Why this event is taking place?

The Warrior Surf Foundation is organizing a 5K to further its mission of supporting veterans through unconventional and therapeutic means. This event serves as a platform to raise awareness about the foundation's unique approach, utilizing surfing as a powerful tool for addressing the mental health challenges faced by veterans. The 5K not only raises funds crucial for the foundation's operations but also fosters community engagement and solidarity. By bringing people together in a physical and symbolic run, the foundation aims to showcase the importance of physical activity, teamwork, and a sense of purpose in the rehabilitation and well-being of veterans. The 5K is a testament to the foundation's commitment to holistic support, emphasizing the connection between physical activity, mental health, and the journey to healing for our veterans.
