Run As One is held in honor of Marine veteran Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon, Mission Continues Fellow, and avid sportsman, who took his own life after battling PTSD and depression. Clay was an active participant in many veteran organizations and the event serves as a celebration of the networks that empower, unite, and enrich the lives of veterans. It is a symbol of leadership, action, and collaboration across the veteran landscape globally and within our local communities.

Run As One is a unique engagement opportunity. It began in 2012 as an attempt to bring previously hostile tribes in South Sudan together for healthy competition off the battlefield and has grown into a collaborative global event. When Clay passed, we realized we needed to forge a stronger community – both with veterans and civilians. Run As One is an opportunity to establish and renew bonds with our brothers and sisters in our partner organizations and communities. Demonstrate to the world our collective culture of inclusivity and camaraderie. So run. Run fast. Run slow. Run as a team. Appreciate and live the greater meaning of today. We know shared purpose and hard work towards a common goal builds the strongest communities, so run together, run as one. Use today to connect with all of your veteran brothers and sisters while establishing meaningful connections within the community.
