To never quit, it takes sheer determination. That’s the theme the NFL players mentioned here decided to dedicate the season opener to. We love being a part of such a spirited movement. That’s why we thought we’d take a moment to introduce to the Never Quit Challenge so you, too, can see just how special it is.
On September 9th, 2013, the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles took to the field for yet another season of Monday night football. Players, EJ Biggers and Josh Morgan from the Redskins, and Brandon Boykin and Vinny Curry of the Eagles dedicated their game to the Never Quit Challenge (NQC) and Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF).
Veterans rode in the Atlantic Ocean from Key West, Florida to New York City to raise awareness for veterans and wounded veterans charities. The challenge took place from September 6th to September 11th. It covered 2,500 miles and was carried out on jet skis. Veterans, including those with prosthetic legs, took part in the event which raised awareness. They were on the field on September 9th during the football game to remember the fallen and wounded.
We were a part of the challenge in our own way by creating custom challenge coins for the event. Challenge coins have long been part of the military’s culture. They have been used to thank, honor, and commend since World War II so it was only fitting that they be a part of this year’s challenge. We were honored to be asked to create the coins which are pictured here.
