New York, (October 25, 2022) – Hosted by Paine Schwartz Partners, a global leader in sustainable food chain investing, the No Obstacles: A Race For The Warriors Spartan Race recently raised $531,000 for Hope For The Warriors.

Taking place on Governors Island, approximately 175 participants completed the event featuring a memorial race and a custom Spartan Race which included a herc hoist, a seven-foot wall and more on the obstacle course.

Proceeds from the event support the national nonprofit Hope For The Warriors, which assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming including health and wellness, sports and recreation, and transition services.

“We have been blown away with the results of the No Obstacles: A Race For The Warriors Spartan Race,” shared Robin Kelleher, co-founder and CEO for Hope For The Warriors. “Then again, when Kevin Schwartz joined our board council just two years ago, we had no doubt he would accomplish big things in support of the military families that we serve here at HOPE. We are very appreciative of all that Kevin and his colleagues have done to raise awareness and funds for HOPE’s programs.”

“We are honored to support such a worthy cause and are proud of the event’s success and the good it will do for our veterans and their families,” said Kevin Schwartz, chief executive officer of Paine Schwartz. “Hope For The Warriors strives to restore a sense of self, family and hope in the warrior community. We appreciate the significant support and participation at the event, and are pleased to help Hope For The Warriors continue its important mission.”
