As we prepare for another week of tour stops, I wanted to take a moment and let you know how you can become more involved in Operation Enduring Warrior – outside of participating in tour stops…
The place to start is to become an OEW Community Ambassador (OCA). Below is the full description of what the purpose of an OCA is and what they do. Read it before signing up, but joining is a free and simple process:
1. Setup a Kintera donation page: http://bit.ly/oewkinterareg
2. Request to join the OCA Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/oewcommunityambassadors/
For more information or assistance, please contact OCA Liaison, Mike Bailey, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OEW Community Ambassador (OCA) Description:
Established to provide supporters of the OEW mission around the country with the opportunity to personally and positively affect the lives of our nation’s wounded service members and their families. (NO GAS MASKS PLEASE! Only our Masked Athlete Team (MAT) wears gas masks). By registering as an Operation Enduring Warrior Community Ambassador (OCA), volunteers can collect donations from individuals or organizations.
Providing much needed support, our OCAs consist of compassionate people who take the time and initiative to accomplish/volunteer at/compete in/host events or feats while supporting OEW. Fundraising is competitive and often difficult; however, we are also a team. Use this group to your advantage to participate in events and help spread the word to others about OEW’s ongoing mission.
By rallying communities in support of OEW, OCAs show our wounded service members they are not forgotten. The funding and awareness that is raised by OCAs is an integral part of the support OEW needs to accomplish it’s mission. OCAs pledge to raise funds in a variety of creative ways as well as raise awareness for OEW and they have fun in the process!
Whether you’re a seasoned athlete, participating in your first event or acting as a volunteer in one of many ways, your efforts can make a difference in the quality of life for our wounded service members! Check the Group Page and the main Facebook Page for updates and events where the OEW Team calls all OCAs to join us in our mission to Honor, Empower and Motivate our nation’s wounded service members.
Good luck and Honor Their Sacrifice!
Ruck 6 stops and you get a six-pack patch!
12 stops get you the twelve-pack patch!
24 stops earns you the pony keg patch!
It has been mentioned a couple of times in Facebook Live videos, but wanted to formally announce the program we have for completing multiple events – as well as the special patches.
At the completion of each Capital Tour 2017 stop, participants earn one of 2 patches:
– for the full Rx ruck (20 miles), you get the full color version
– for the Scaled ruck (5 miles), you get the gray-scale version
That does not change with the addition of the multiple tour stop patches. We now have special patches for those participants that complete 6 tour stops, 12 tour stops or even 24 tour stops. We also have a discount for participants plan to earn one of these patches.
For a 6-pack patch – we only have one person (besides Danny) that has earned this patch as of today, but let us know before you register for your 6th tour stop. We will provide a coupon code for you that will make your 6th tour stop free.
For a 12-pack patch – like above, your 6th and 12th events are free. Let us know before you register and we will get you coupon codes.
Although unlikely that anyone will complete 24 tour stops to earn the Pony Keg patch, let us know if plan to and we will work out your registration discount!
All we can ask is that you come back for multiple tour stops! Make sure to bring your friends and family to each as well!

So who likes burpees? No one raised their hand, right? Well, we are still going to do them!
The Capital Tour 2017 has a goal of doing 1 million burpees by the end of the year… and we need all the help we can get!
Here is where YOU come in… you can submit any burpees you do this year – doesn’t have to be at a tour stop – to help get us to our goal. Whenever you do burpees in a workout at home, at the gym, cause you failed a Spartan obstacle or whenever, you can submit your count at www.capitaltour2017.com/burpees
We know 1 million is a HUGE goal – so let’s start small. Let’s hit 100,000 by June 1st!
We have been asked a couple times why only 48 states and we haven’t been able to come up with a good answer…
So we are announcing 2 more stops being added to the tour! We are going to visit those 2 states off the southwest coast of California!
So now we need your help getting people out to these stops! Please share with friends, family, groups, gyms or anyone that will be in the area. Also, start planning your travel and come join in on the fun!
The New shirts are available for purchase on our website now!
Check them out here:
These are a great way to support the tour right where you are.
Also, be on the lookout for new items headed to the online shop soon!
A portion of all Proceeds go towards Operation Enduring Warrior.
