Run As One is a unique engagement opportunity where members of Team Red, White & Blue, Team Rubicon, and The Mission Continues, along with members of their community and veteran supporters come together for a day of solidarity to showcase how exercise, community, and inclusivity combine to combat mental health challenges. Run As One began in 2012, and continues to showcase the power of unity and physical fitness with remembrance of Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon, who took his own life after battling PTSD and depression. When Clay passed, we realized we needed to forge a stronger community – both with veterans and civilians.
Run As One establishes and renews bonds with our brothers and sisters through physical activity. We know that when we come together and take on a new challenge, we build stronger bonds. Together, with our partner organizations and communities, we will demonstrate the power of relationships and physical activity in facing mental health challenges. So run! Run fast. Run slow. Run as a team. Use today to connect with all of your veteran brothers and sisters while establishing meaningful connections within the community. Appreciate and live the greater meaning of today. We know shared purpose and hard work towards a common goal builds healthier veterans and stronger communities, so run together, Run As One!
If I had one thing to say to my fellow veterans, it would be this: continue to serve, even though we have taken off our uniforms. - Clay Hunt, USMC

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.
