Joggin’ for Frogmen
“One of the greatest things we can do to support our military is to give back to the foundations that support our military families”
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 service members and veterans, and to support the families of our fallen heroes. Our races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving.
–The Joggin’ for Frogmen Team
Bottle Breacher is proud to support Joggin’ for Frogmen. Created in 2011 by the girlfriend of a Navy SEAL, 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 31 heroes our nation lost on that fateful day.
Joggin’ for Frogmen has since expanded to seven annual races across the United States (OH, NE, CA, VA, KY, PA, MA). Runners are also able to participate as a “Virtual Racer,” running from anywhere around the world. Sign up for the 5k Run/Walk virtual race. We hope you will jog with us to support our mission and to continue helping our military families. To request a race in your area, pleaseclick here.
Through this partnership and mission alignment, the proceeds raised by Joggin’ for Frogmen events will be given to the charities to help sustain and grow charitable programs that provide immediate and ongoing assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community as well as families of fallen sailors, soldiers, airmen, and marines. Which includes, educational support & scholarships, tragedy assistance, survivor support & empowerment, and challenge grants.
Joggin’ for Frogmen is operated by a staff of 100% military spouses. Supporting the Joggin’ for Frogmen series will directly impact the lives of the military spouses who organize the events, as well as further its primary mission of providing services to military families around the world.
