Appalachian Yomp 2021

The Allied Forces Foundation Appalachian Yomp from October 2-3, 2021, is an exciting team-building challenge for wounded, ill and injured service people, caregivers and family members to take part in and raise awareness and funds for fellow warriors in need. The Appalachian Yomp will have participants from U.S. and allied partner nations' wounded communities walking side by side with a goal to learn from each other's experiences.

The 48-mile route is to be covered in 24 hours and follows part of the Appalachian Trail. It starts at the Boulder Crest Retreat (BCR) in Bluemont, Virginia, and covers terrain to historic Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, returning to finish at BCR after completing challenges along the route. Teams of four will raise money for the Allied Forces Foundation, supporting our brave veterans.

All miles raised will go toward supporting travel for wounded warriors and caregivers so they can take part in the challenge.

About us

Allied Forces Foundation was established to unite wounded, ill and injured service people and veterans, as well as caregivers from the U.S., UK, and allied nations’ forces in wellness and healing. Through outdoor, peer-led events that challenge the mind and body, Allied Forces Foundation provides opportunities that reinvigorate the spirit of comradeship and teamwork and instills a renewed sense of purpose within veterans. ”Side by Side” is our motto because it exemplifies our approach to recovery.
