Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen). The mission of the Joggin for Frogmen Race series is to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of our Naval Special Warfare service member and veterans and to support the families of our fallen heroes. The races bring communities together to celebrate the life’s of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving. Created in 2011, the original Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k Run/Walk was held in San Diego on July 29, 2012. The race marked the one-year anniversary of the Extortion 17 helicopter tragedy in Afghanistan, a tribute to the 30 American warriors and 1 working dog lost that fateful day.
All funds raised through the Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K Race Series will go toward supporting survivors within the Naval Special Warfare community with best-in-class personal development training and experiences that allow them to find healing and honor their loved ones through service.
