"Never Quit" Challenge at Miami Marine Stadium Friday, September 6, 5:30pm-11:30pm - Miami Marine Stadium, 3501 Rickenbacker Causeway, Key Biscayne

Gloria Estefan, Mayor Tomas Regalado, and Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces will gather at Miami Marine Stadium to Kickoff the “Never Quit” Challenge,” on Friday, September 6, 2013. The stadium’s legendary basin will serve as the first stop for six teams of US Special Operations warriors as they travel the East Coast by jet ski. The “Never Quit” Challenge is a land and nautical-centered fundraising event supporting American veterans and their families. Starting Friday, the teams will venture on a 1,600-mile journey from Key West to New York City, arriving at their final destination on Wednesday, September 11. The first stop of their journey will be at Miami Marine Stadium. The warriors will ride into the stadium’s basin and be recognized on stage at about 6:30 pm. From 7:00-11:00 pm, the event will move to nearby Whiskey Joe’s Bar and Grill, located at 3301 Rickenbacker Causeway near the entrance to the Rusty Pelican. Supporters will be able to meet “Never Quit” participants and make donations to important veterans’ charities through a live auction. This event is free and open to the public (no registration required).
