Since 2016, Evan with the support of Strength & Speed has conducted annual charity events raising more than $26,000 for Folds of Honor, $3500 for Infinite Hero Foundation and through organizing Tough Mudder's Infinite Hero Honor Challenge those participants raised an additional $24,000 for Infinite Hero Foundation.
Evan set out to climb the height of Everest on a Tough Mudder course. Don't miss the 10 minute documentary shot by Bobby Ross which helped raise more than $3500 for Infinite Hero Foundation.
Groups of 10-20 people navigate a Tough Mudder course in a land navigation format over 10 hours doing obstacles in an unconventional manner with additional rules while following a storyline. Participants do obstacles blindfolded, backwards, tied together, all as a team as they learn life lessons from combat veterans teaching them problem solving and resiliency. A truly unique event that lasted two years and raised more than $24,000 for Infinite Hero Foundation.
