Join us on Veterans Day, Friday November 10th for our annual Chad 1000x workout and help raise awareness for Veteran suicide. This workout will be our workout of the day for all classes on Nov 10th. Official registration is not required, but highly encouraged. We have provided a link at the bottom of this post for the official registration page. All proceeds go to support veteran mental health initiatives.

From the official Chad 1000x web page:

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.

CHAD 1000X has brought together thousands of registered participants (with over $226K raised in 2020-21) looking to be a part of something greater than themselves. To not only bring awareness to the epidemic of suicide, particularly among veterans, but also to help be part of the solution through the support to the The Step Up Foundation and other veteran health initiatives.

This year, join us again in paying respect to Chad Wilkinson and all those who have been lost to suicide, while also committing to try to change the number. #CHAD1000X

The workout:

1000X Step Ups completed as a team, partner, or individual for time.

1. Slick //
No rucksack. You pick the height of the step-ups.
2. Standard // 30#/20# rucksack. You pick the height of the step-ups.
3. Expert // 45# rucksack. Use 20" box for step-ups.

“Even while serving as a SEAL, Chad took time to scale up to the Expert version. There is zero shame in starting Slick, or with Standard weight, or in sharing the steps with a friend.”
— Sara Wilkinson
