To finish 2021 Honor Week we are doing Chad.
CHAD 1000X is a workout designed by Chad Wilkinson, a former member of SEAL Team 6 who died by suicide on October 29, 2018. His wife Sara now uses it as a rallying cry to have a real conversation about mental health issues. Her goal is to honor Chad’s life and change the number of Veterans (and all people) who take or are thinking about this path. Chad created the workout to train for the rigors of a near 23,000 foot summit in Argentina. After his death, it has become a Hero Workout and an outcry for those struggling with mental health to join the community and focus on taking one more step.
A Department of Veterans Affairs study estimates each day, over 20 veterans take their own lives. Veteran Suicide Prevention is a cause we care deeply about, so we are proud to be working with GORUCK on this. All proceeds of the CHAD 1000X fundraiser will go to support Veteran Mental Health Initiatives. 50% of the proceeds will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation and 50% will pass through the GORUCK Foundation to The Step Up Foundation (0% allocated to overhead) which, in conjunction with Sara Wilkinson, will provide financial support to other nonprofits dedicated to Veteran Mental Health initiatives.
You can officaily sign up for Chad and get a limited edition shirt and patch by clic=king on the image below.
The Workout1,000 box 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.”
