What is the Walter N. Levy Challenge?
The Walter N. Levy Challenge is an 8 Mile combat endurance course that challenges its participants physically and mentally. This year the race is bigger and better than ever before. The course is longer with new obstacles that will challenge you and push you farther than you could imagine. The goal of the race is to raise awareness and money for wounded Marine Corps veterans who have served and who currently serve. It is important to recognize the American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice and show them our support. Levy Challenge has been made possible by its dedicated creators, The Semper Fidelis Society, its proud sponsors, and its generous, tough participants. We stay true and faithful to our goals set in place and will continue to keep the race alive in order to always show our support for our incredible American heroes.
