THE WHITEBOARD PROJECT ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL FUNDRAISING PARTNERSHIP WITH WOUNDED WARRIORS CANADA
PETERBOROUGH – The Whiteboard Project, a media and events brand challenging human potential, is now an official fundraising partner of Wounded Warriors Canada, a national mental health charity supporting Canada’s ill and injured Veterans, First Responders and their families. The Whiteboard Project will host an extreme 24-hour isolation and endurance challenge at the Spartan World Championships on September 28, 2018 in an effort to raise awareness and support for Wounded Warriors Canada.
“This is a first of its kind type of event; it’s never been done anywhere in the world. Spartan has supported us by giving us a big platform and we wanted to ensure we used it to support the Veteran and First Responder community,” says John Witzing, Founder of The Whiteboard Project.
The 24-hour Isolation Challenge will see three (3) endurance athletes stepping inside their own shipping container. There, they will run on a TrueForm Runner in an environment deprived of light, sound and any other typical data used to gauge and monitor performance. The athlete running the furthest during the 24-hours will walk away the winner. The event will be broadcasted live to various social media platforms from the Spartan World Championships with the goal of raising money in support of mental health related organizations and causes in the United States and Canada.
The challenge will see three endurance athletes face off against each other: Retired United States Marine, Major Brian Chontosh (aka “Tosh”); 3-times Ironman, John Witzing; and one of Canada’s top personal trainers, Josh Chessman.
Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada, commented, “Getting inside of the box to think outside of the box is an important concept, and one that fits directly with how we develop and deliver our innovative mental health programming. What’s more, for Wounded Warriors Canada, partnerships make our programs possible. We are grateful for the support of the athletes and thank the team for joining our #InThisTogether mental health mission. When it comes to the health and well-being of those who serve Canada at home and abroad, everybody has a role to play.”
