Team: Overwatch raises money for various military non-profits as an athletic team. We focus on building a community that unites veterans, active duty, families and local businesses to help prevent stopping points in the road to recovery for families or service-members that are recovering from loss or wounds.


WHAT WE'VE ACHIEVED

  • We hosted our ReRun Race Shirts and Warmies clothing drive, benefitting San Diego's homeless community, at Milestone Running Co. 
  • Keg-Tow 2016 was a huge success! What a blast we had at the Elks lodge in Ballard. Not to mention that we crushed our goal of $5,500 dollars. Thank you to all our sponsors that helped make that event so much fun. 
  • Our last fundraiser is nearing completion in June of 2015, where we raised over $14,000 for SGT. Eric Hunter and his family to purchase property or a house after being medically retired after sustaining incredible injuries while serving in Afghanistan.
  • Our inaugural Toy Drive kicked off on December 19th of 2015 and it was a huge success. We were able to provide almost 4,000 toys to families in need this holiday season. 
  • We held our SECOND annual keg-tow benefit in Seattle, WA. & San Diego, CA! We had four swimmers total and an amazing time raising money for the Fisher House Foundation. We doubled our amount raised over last year and are over the moon excited to make our end of year contribution to the continued success of FHF. 
  • IB Pet sponsored a booth at the Imperial Beach Sea and Sun Festival 2015. It was a great, although a windy and wet day. Thank you to everyone that came out to enjoy the music and play in the weather!
  • We are live on Amazon Smile! Donate without spending an extra cent. Make sure to set your preferences to shop at smile.amazon.com and select Team: Overwatch as your favorite charity.
  • On May 2nd & 3rd, T:O Team Members David and Christina, held a fundraiser for Fisher House Foundation, raising over $2,000 while running their first Ultra-Marathons. 
  • At the end of the year, T:O was able to write the first of (hopefully) many EOY checks. We raised over $9,200 dollars in 2014! We were able to send $4,200 of that to EOD Warrior Foundation and the remainder was used to create a endowment fund that will be used to bolster scholarships aimed at ensuring the children of veterans can afford tuition and continued education.
  • On Dec. 23rd, T:O officially received 501(c)3 status.
  • On Dec. 6 2014, we were honored to be invited to participate in the first annual SoCal '23' Ruck. We honored the 23 veterans that commit suicide every day. 
  • On September 21st of 2014, one of our very own Board members towed a keg of beer through the Puget Sound to raise money for EOD Warrior Foundation. We raised over $3000 dollars that day and thanks to some of our special guests, made a big impact with education to friends and family in the Pacific Northwest. 
  • On July 2nd of 2014, Team: Overwatch filed for 501(c)3 status!!
