Memorial Beach Challenge is proud to organize and host an annual event that brings together athletes and families for a day of competition and comradery—but also to honor those who have served and support the heroes still in the fight. 100% of the proceeds from the event benefit The 31Heroes Project—an organization that specializes in creating programs, financial support systems and future opportunities for service members, veterans and their families.
The main Obstacle Course Challenge event is a soft-sand adventure race—featuring Navy SEAL-approved obstacles. Very popular for young families is our Kids Fun Run, the Memorial Beach Challenge event has something for individual athletes and teams of all ages. But beyond the races that test our own physical and mental strength, the day is about honoring those whose sacrifice, strength, and bravery helps preserve the freedom we enjoy every day. The event closes with a moving memorial service, ensuring that the legacies of our heroes are never forgotten.

My wife and I, with two friends started this event five years ago as a way to raise funds for Military familys and awareness of the true meaning of Memorial Day. We are fortunate enough to have the support of our home town of Ocean City, NJ to allow us to orginize a 100% volenteer obstacle course race on the beach. We have partnered up with the 31 Heroes Project to handle all the financials and distribution of funds.
