Frogman Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization seeking to raise $1,000,000 for nonprofits that support our nation’s Navy SEAL veterans, military personnel and their families.

Seeking to raise $1,000,000 for organizations that support Navy SEAL veterans, their families and other select charitable causes, Don Mann – retired U.S. Navy SEAL member of Team SIX, adventure racer and sports event producer – has announced the creation of a new nonprofit, Frogman Charities. The organization will raise funds by conducting virtual 5K run/walk programs that benefit the UDT-SEAL Association, the National Navy SEAL Museum and the Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans.

“As a retired Navy SEAL, I have a very clear understanding of the many hardships and sacrifices that our military personnel and their families make and live with on a daily basis,” said Don Mann, founder and CEO of Frogman Charities and retired U.S. Navy SEAL member of Team SIX. “I founded Frogman Charities to make it possible for people from all walks of life to play a part in supporting SEAL veterans and their families while encouraging fitness at the same time.”

Frogman Charities, a 501(c)(3) organization, conducts virtual run/walk events in partnership with organizations seeking to support its mission of raising $1,000,000 for nonprofits that support Navy SEAL veterans, their families and other charitable causes. Founder Don Mann is known for producing and directing more multi-day, multi-sport, adventure races, triathlons and SEAL training events than any other person in the world.

The inaugural Frogman Charities Virtual 5K Run/Walk is going on now through Friday, September 11, 2015. During the 30 days leading up to the anniversary of 9/11, people around the world are doing a 5K run/walk in support of Frogman Charities and its mission. Participants may complete the 5K all at once or may break it up into multiple segments completed on different days or weeks.

Participants will receive a custom finisher’s medal, challenge coin and a finisher's certificate recognizing their support of the UDT-SEAL Association, the National Navy SEAL Museum and the Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans. They also have the option of ordering a signed copy of “Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America's Elite Warriors" or “Hunt the Fox," both written by Don Mann.

“As an experienced sports event producer, I know that it is sometimes difficult for people from different cities to come together on one day, at one time, in one location to support a cause,” stated Mann. “By conducting a virtual run/walk event, a nonprofit can give people living anywhere in the world an opportunity to come together virtually and show their support for that nonprofit.”

“The Frogman Charities team is skilled at conducting these events and presenting them for organizations that are interested in doing them but perhaps don’t have the staff resources to do so,” continued Mann. “We invite you to contact us to learn more about how working together we can help America’s nonprofits as well as our veterans.”
