CSX to sponsor Wounded Warrior Project's new fitness challenge


CSX will be a presenting sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Project's new Carry Forward 5K fitness challenge.

Carry Forward is a fitness challenge and fundraiser that helps wounded military veterans access free "life-changing" programs, according to a press release.

"As an employer of many veterans and active duty military members, CSX is thrilled to help launch this fun and challenging 5K event, which will help raise much-needed support for veterans and their families," said CSX President and Chief Executive Officer James Foote.

Carry Forward will challenge individuals and squads to test their strength and stamina with three levels of participation:
• flag, which allows the demonstration of patriotism and support of warriors by carrying a flag throughout the route;
• fitness, which has participants carrying a 1- to 100-pound weight as they run or walk; and
• fierce, which has one supporter carrying another.
