Courage Beyond is raising awareness and money for our cause through the Go Commando 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon in Clarksville, TN on October 18, 2014. In 2013, 7 Team Courage runners participated in this event and raised around $1,500 to provide no-cost and low-cost programs for warriors and their families affected by PTSD and other invisible wounds of war.  It is our goal to raise even more support with this year’s event!


This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our runners, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference by partnering with CrowdRise.


To Register for the Team Courage Charity Team, click the big "Register" button.


To Donate just click the big "Donate" button and choose the runner you want to donate to.


How it works:


Registration for the team is FREE.  This lets us know your contact information and shirt size to send you your Team Courage gender-specific tech shirt.


IMPORTANT: To receive your race registration, you must register for the Go Commando race in which you would like to participate on the official race website. Be sure to select the option to join the “Courage Beyond at Centerstone” registration option in order to qualify for your Team Courage tech shirt and other goodies as well as ensure Courage Beyond receives a donation from your registration.


If you already have a race registration or would like to be a "virtual runner," you may still register with us to run and fundraise with us. A $25 donation will be requested to receive your Team Courage tech shirt if you have not registered on the official race website as a Courage Beyond runner.


Please email Melanie Riddick at with any questions or for more information.


Training/Fundraising Details:


While there is no fundraising minimum, incentives and prizes such as your Clarksville hotel room, a restaurant gift card, and more can be earned by achieving other fundraising goals. A team dinner may be organized the night before the race if there is enough interest!


Courage Beyond staff member Melanie Riddick will serve as your coach and assist you with both your marathon training AND your fundraising to help ensure that you reach all your goals! Once you register to join the team, create your personal fundraising page here on Crowdrise.


Upon registration, you’ll receive a team information packet from Melanie Riddick. This will be full of training information, fundraising tips, etc. Don’t be nervous – you WILL succeed at completing the race AND raising the funds to help more returning war veterans and their families!
