United Way of Broward County’s MISSION UNTIED is a recipient of this year’s Soldier Rush. On Saturday, November 9, 2019, at the Equestrian Center in Parkland, FL, Fitness on a Mission will host its 5th annual Soldier Rush Obstacle Course Race to raise money for veterans, first responders and those in need in South Florida.
Soldier Rush is a patriotic, military style obstacle course race where individuals and teams of all ages and fitness levels can challenge themselves and finish with a sense of accomplishment. In the spirit of the event participants are encouraged to come out in patriotic themed attire! Formed in 2014 by Manuel Mair, Soldier Rush was started as a community-based race to raise funds to support local veterans and first responders.
As part of the experience, participants must overcome various physical challenges over walls, grass, trail, mud and water for 3.1 miles. SOLDIER RUSH is the epitome of the military boot camp obstacle race. With patriotism at the heart of the event, SOLDIER RUSH gives a real Military Boot Camp experience, testing the endurance, strength, speed and dexterity of its participants in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
Sponsors for this event include Keiser University, Innovative Insurance Consultants, Broward Health Coral Springs, Greenberg Traurig LLP and Eaton Financial Group.
