(Tampa, FL – Jan. 17th, 2019) On February 9th, Josh Andrews will be raising awareness and collecting donations for The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). This will be his third year working with this charity, based out of Tampa Florida. In collaboration with Warrior Dash, they will also be hosting a fitness challenge at their Clermont, Florida venue.
The SOWF is a 501(c)(3) American tax-exempt nonprofit organization founded to help provide support for the families of fallen soldiers. More specifically, The SOWF works to provide college scholarships and academic counseling to the surviving children of those killed in the line of duty. As well, The SOWF takes responsibility for reaching out to eligible families. Throughout the child’s academic process, they make it their duty to stay in touch, making sure that the proper support is given to the children and families of the deceased. More specifically, they also ensure that in-home tutoring is available from Kindergarten through college. This would include creating customized plans for high school students who are moving into college, on top of academic support through their SAT/ACT and college application process. Currently, they are working with up to 1.1 thousand children in association with The SOWF.
When Josh Andrews and The SOWF first affiliated with Warrior Dash 2 years ago, he did lunges through the entire 3.3 mile course, all while carrying The SOWF flag, and the year after he decided to bear crawl to the finish line. This year, however, he is adding a twist. Andrews will be cleaning and tossing (with no additional step) a 65 pound BruteForce sandbag through the entire course. To add to that, he will be wearing a SOWF shirt and hat, with a flag attached to his ruck. If you find him, before he begins this challenge, he will be giving out SOWF swag to anyone who supports the cause and charity. For those who are interested in supporting The SOWF, there is a donation link included at the bottom of the page.
