United in Competition: All Academy Challenge Launches 16 August

To our United States Service Academy alumni, families, and friends worldwide:

In May, we shared a message about our mutual values and the missions of the five United States service academies in the fight against COVID-19.

We affirmed that the ideals that support our commitment to serve our country continue to unite us during the challenges posed to our communities.

During these months, we have been proud to continue to serve and support our graduates and academies through programs, outreach, and fundraising.

Recognizing the tremendous uncertainty created by the COVID-19 crisis, our alumni communities have made it clear: they support the purpose and impact of their alma maters, and they want to play a part in their futures.

With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce the coming 2020 All Academy Challenge: 16-20 August. It’s 5 Teams. 5 Days. 1 Mission—five alumni communities coming together in support of their academies: Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.

Look for more information in the weeks ahead about the 2020 Challenge and how you can participate. Tell your classmates and fellow alumni to get on board—their support is more important than ever.
