Project Campbell's Call

To honor the last wish of Navy SEAL, Chris Campbell, starting on August 30th 2022, Nels Matson will attempt to break the World Record for the fastest run across America--San Francisco to NYC in less than 42 days. Supported on the road by Chris’ sister Cindy Campbell and Nels’ wife Denise Zolla Pizzo-Matson, he will attempt to run a record-breaking pace of >72 miles per day. Nels is doing “Project Campbell’s Call” to raise awareness for the Call to Action that Chris Campbell has left behind for of each of us.


What is Project Campbell's Call?

Nels worked on an accounting team with Cindy Campbell and learned about her brother's call to action in a book that Cindy lent him to read. Her brother, Chris Campbell, was a Navy SEAL who served our country for almost 15 years and through many deployments. He was killed in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash, along with many of his teammates and other military members on August 6, 2011. Shortly after his death, his sister learned he left an accompanying note with his will. He hoped 100,000 people would donate to Wounded Warrior Project/WWP - an organization that provides life-saving services and programs to post 9/11 wounded service members. Just over 30,000 people have donated to WWP in Chris' memory. His last request was selfless and honorable. Let's help him cross the finish line and meet this goal that defies death and inspires life. Your donation (of any amount) will go towards accomplishing Chris Campbell's FINAL mission.
