The mission of the Never Quit Challenge is a land and nautical centered fundraising event supporting American Veterans and their families with community participation that benefits select notable Charities. 


The Never Quit Challenge is vetted by veterans and wounded warriors who will operate Kawasaki Ultra LX Jetskis through a grueling six day passage.  


The Never Quit Ethos dries our mission.  The Never Quit Challenge is based both on land and water moving a team of 30 members with boats, and equipment safely across the USA. 


These veterans will be on 6 select Teams commemorating KIA special operations warriors with each team hosting boat dedications in their honor.  


Their NQC journey covers 1,600 miles of open ocean waters commencing on September 6th, 2013 in Key West Florida, with several overnight checkpoints and various fuel stations en route to New York City, NY. The NQC Teams arrive in NYC on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks against American on September 11, 2013.  


The Never Quit Challenge raises awareness of these select charities raising funds and promoting educational outreach regarding Veterans causes that in turn are passed back to their own communities.
