Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great spring! We've had a lot of great events recently and this one is no different.
We will be supporting Bastion Community of Resilience during the 2018 Crescent City Classic 10k!
The Mission Continues has had a great partnership with Bastion since the platoon was launched. Several of our members are residents there and we have hosted events and partnered with them in the past and will continue to do so.
If you aren't familiar with Bastion, watch this video http://bit.ly/2BCc0hY and check out their website at www.joinbastion.org.
They are an amazing group of people doing awesome things for our veteran community in New Orleans.
There are two ways that we as a platoon can support Bastion:
1) Sign up to run!
2) Donate to a runner!
When you sign up to run with Team Bastion, your commitment to raise $200 includes:
Your unique charity race bib TWO t-shirts: 2018 Team Bastion Shirt exclusively for our team members CCC 2018 Charity t-shirt Prime starting location in the "Charity Corral" right behind seeded runners Access to VIP restrooms only for charity runners morning of AND an awesome party thrown by Bastion at the finish line!
Think you can raise more than $200? We think you can too! The $500+ Club receives lots of fun perks!
If you don't want to run, you can donate to Team Bastion runners raising money at this link: http://bit.ly/2rNTaEZ
Whether you are a runner yourself and want to support Bastion by doing the CCC 10k, or you just want to support one of the Team Bastion runners by donating, this is a great opportunity for the platoon to show Bastion and the City of New Orleans that we are here to support each other.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
