It’s a drive to see how much further you can go. To see how much faster you can finish. To see how much harder you can fight in honor of those who sacrifice so we can enjoy our freedoms.
One Team One Fight gives amateur athletes the resources they need to fight for something even bigger than themselves and their own personal goals. Because no matter what race you’re in, you can still be part of one team.
It doesn’t matter what your current skill level is—One Team One Fight welcomes athletes from all backgrounds, from seasoned triathletes and Crossfitters to first-time 5K racers or beginner runners. Despite different experience levels and athletic proficiencies, our athletes only need to have one thing in common: a shared desire to make a difference in the lives of our military’s heroes and their families.
In 2008, a group of friends decided to run Virginia Beach’s Rock ‘N Roll Half-Marathon together as a team. Beyond their dedication to training and their endurance sports, the runners had one thing in common—they were all wives of military servicemen. The team decided to use the race as a way to raise funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation—an organization dedicated to supporting and serving members of the Navy Special Warfare community and their families. After successfully raising money for the Navy SEAL Foundation by having friends and family sponsor their first race, the group decided to equip other athletes to make a difference themselves, and One Team One Fight was born.
With the goal of creating an organization that would help individual athletes, teams, and event organizers also raise funds to help members of our nation’s military, One Team One Fight began to grow.
On August 6, 2011, a helicopter carrying 30 members of Navy Special Operation forces and a military dog was downed in Afghanistan. Back home, the tragedy further united a community, igniting a renewed passion to help support the family members of fallen heroes. In the wake of the events, The 31HeroesProject was created as a way for Crossfit athletes to come together to support the warriors that inspire us all. The 31Heroes Project helps organize special workouts at CrossFit gyms (aka “Boxes”) around the country that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for the surviving families of military heroes.
In early 2012, One Team One Fight formed a new partnership, with all of the funds raised by athletes through races, events, and workouts benefitting both of these amazing organizations—The Navy SEAL Foundation and the 31Heroes Project. Today The 31Heroes Project operates all of the One Team One Fight events to help support its mission to support the families of Extortion 17 and service members battling the toils of PTDS/TBI.
One Team One Fight is an entity of The 31Heroes Project, whose Board of Directors and staff are dedicated to equipping athletes to use their sports—from endurance races and adventure events to CrossFit workouts and 3 Gun Nation competitions—to support these two amazing non-profits.
With a focus on moving from transactional to transformational, One Team One Fight does more than just help raise money for incredible causes. We forge relationships, facilitate experiences, and empower passions that last a lifetime. Because sometimes running a race is about more than just reaching the finish line.
