NASCAR K&N Pro Series Idaho 208 with Jesse Iwuji

Mission43 is cheering on Jesse Iwuji, Navy officer turned NASCAR driver, in the upcoming Idaho 208 at Meridian Speedway. Jesse, his friends, and family donated 200 tickets for the race last year...this year their goal is 500! Jesse still serves in the Navy Reserves and we couldn't be more honored to spend time with an incredible representative of the military/veteran community. 

Jesse has also donated five rides around the track in his two-seat car the Friday before the race. One person who has done incredible things in each of the Mission43 pillars (education, employment, purpose, and connection) will be given this opportunity as a thank you for the impact on Idaho military families!

You can get involved in a few ways:

  • Attend the race and cheer for Jesse. Tickets will be available at the gate on a first come, first serve basis with your military ID card/DD214.
  • Donate tickets alongside Jesse and help his team get to the goal of 500 tickets. When you buy your ticket here, one will also be donated to a military family. 
  • Follow Jesse on Instagram and show some Idaho support! 

Gates open at 4:00pm

FitOne Race Volunteer Team

FitOne Race Volunteer Team

We are excited to have a Mission43 water/nutrition station along the race course at this year's St. Luke's FitOne 5K/10K/Half Marathon, which takes place on Saturday, September 23rd. Nearly 10,000 runners and walkers are expected overall, and race proceeds benefit St. Luke's Children's Hospital. 

We are throwing our own Mission43 twist on volunteering for the event. Our M43 set-up will be located along the half marathon course, so we'll be supporting the estimated 2,000 half marathon runners (and possibly some walkers) as they run along the Boise River Greenbelt near the orange Baybrook Court Bridge. Think of it as an early morning party providing the best re-hydration service on the course, complete with food for our volunteer team, music, a FitOne Volunteer t-shirt, and Mission43 swag as a thank you for helping make this treasured community event a success.

We need a volunteer team of 20 people, and volunteers must be 14 years or older. Volunteers will need to arrive by 6:00 a.m. to help us set-up our station, and we should be wrapped up no later than 12 noon. Drop us a quick email to let us know you're in, and we'll send you a link to officially register for the Mission43 volunteer team, along with further details as they're finalized.

Thank you in advance for your help - and we look forward to seeing you on race day!
