The Brick 26 Challenge will take place on August 4 at 8 a.m. in Eisenhower Park. Participants will go through a 10K road course while being pushed by bootcamps and drill sergeants while carrying one or five bricks. The bricks will be used to construct a monument.
There is a choice of five types of participation, including the Brick 26 Competitive Challenge, 10K Bootcamper, 10K straight, 5K Bootcamper, and Honor Walk. For additional information on these activities, please visit the event’s website.
Funds raised from the event will go towards non-profit veteran groups, such as Semper4Soldiers, Honor Flight and a Veteran Hofstra Scholarship.
“With many of our heroes returning home and a growing number of local veterans in need of financial, emotional and physical assistance events such as the Brick 26 Challenge can be of great assistance,” said Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano in a statement. “I want to thank all of the supporters and sponsors who have gotten behind this idea and given of their time and talents to help and make this event a success. Their generosity will go a long way in helping our local heroes who have given up so much to protect our freedom.”
