About Epic Charity
Epic Charity Challenge was established by Retired Navy SEAL Officer Lance Cummings in late 2016, with the goal of creating annual challenges in iconic locations that raises awareness to a specific charity. These challenges are designed to be arduous but achievable for average people with a purpose.
In 2017, he led a 20 person team to Greece where they retraced the route of King Leonidas and his 300 warriors from Sparta to Thermopylae to intercept Persian invaders, 250 miles in eight days. They raised over $130,000.00 for The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation and Navy SEAL Foundation.
In 2018 a team of over 30 will head to Normandy France. There, they will swim 10km in the English Channel, scale the cliffs of Omaha Beach and ruck40+km to Saint Lo’ France (the original objective of D-Day + 24 hours)
