ABOUT THE EVENT
Camp Sunshine, a free retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, will host the annual SEALs for Sunshine event on Thursday, August 19, 2021 and this year’s challenge will be the biggest yet!
The Peak to Peak’s Challenge will be something perhaps no one has ever attempted or accomplished. Participants will begin at the Peak of Mount Washington, NH at 5:30 a.m.. After running 7.6 miles down the auto road, they will bike nearly 100 miles to East End Beach in Portland, ME before entering the harbor for a 2.4 mile swim to Peaks Island!
Retired Navy SEAL Commander, Michael Wisecup started the event back in 2014 and just recently handed the reigns to SEALs for Sunshine veteran Adam Shapiro. From the beginning and still today, the goal was to create challenging physical events for participants to support Camp Sunshine’s mission and the families we serve. Since this event’s inception, Navy SEALs, other servicemen and women, as well as a handful of hearty civilians have been competing in physically daunting tasks to not only raise funds; but awareness for Camp Sunshine.

In 2021, all contributions up to $25,000 will be matched by our legendary partners at Texas Roadhouse.
