The Unquiet Professional continues to look for ways to support the military community while working to bridge the gap between our military and civilian populations. The more we recognize the differences and similarities, the easier it will be to support each other. One way we encourage connection is through our annual events that are open to all. We hope you’ll join us at our next event near you!
Fresh Air Program
Our Fresh Air Program seeks to give male Veterans an empowering outdoor experience where they can connect with other Vets and civilian supporters. So much of the emotional struggle Veterans face after military service is a loss of community. This program not only gets them outside in the fresh air, but works to reclaim that sense of community. Previous excursions have included fly fishing in Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness and hiking the John Muir Trail in California. These excursions are small groups with the participants taking an active role in the planning of the event.
Our Veteran Race Program seeks to give female Veterans an empowering physical experience by participating in an endurance race. Being physically active is a huge part of mental health, and our hope is that these Veterans will stay active and incorporate endurance sports into their healing process. This program will cover race entry and travel costs for the participants
Running & Race Program
The Unquiet Professional partners with wear blue: run to remember to sponsor the Gold Star Race Program for the Rock ’n’ Roll Seattle Marathon and the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C.
Inspired by wear blue: run to remember’s mission to embolden Gold Star family members through running, The Unquiet Professional began supporting their Gold Star Race Program and has since expanded to support other remembrance runs such as the Windy 25 as well as individual runners.
Through sponsorship and partnership, The Unquiet Professional supports engaging, outdoor activities for Gold Star and Surviving Youth. Opportunities like the Gold Star Sailing Program and our Fly Fishing program hosted by Washington Fly Fishing Club. These programs seek to empower and celebrate the children of our nation’s brave men and women.
Our Hands On! program provides children’s museum memberships for Gold Star and Surviving families. Kicked off by the Hands On Children’s Museum in Olympia, WA, more than 30 children’s museums in the Pacific Northwest now offer FREE membership to Gold Star & Surviving Family Members. In a time in their lives they can't control, children's museums can provide opportunities for our Gold Star and Surviving children to take ownership of their play while engaging in activities that promote innovation and authentic learning experiences.
