The 18th Annual Bulldog Challenge
The Bulldog Challenge is a 6-mile extreme endurance course held every year at the Citadel in Charleston, SC. All of the proceeds for the Bulldog Challenge go toward a worthy cause every year. This year, we are donating all proceeds to the Semper Fi Society Scholarship fund, which will be used to help NROTC cadets and active duty Marines at the Citadel who will soon become Marine Officers.
