For the health and safety of our TACP community and the public, the TACP 24HR Challenge has been postponed. Each unit will host their own challenge at times that they’ve selected later in the Spring.
The 24HR Challenge is the TACP Association’s largest and most important annual fundraising event. Founded by CMSgt Eric Rankin, this event unites the TACP Community through camaraderie and competition.
The event honors our fallen TACP brothers and is hosted in March each year because three TACP service members were killed in the month of March. SSgt Jason Faley was killed in training in March 2001 and Gregory Stone and Staff Sgt. Jacob Frazier were killed in action during March 2003.
Monies raised through the TACP 24HR Challenge directly benefit the TACP community, through the programs and services offered by the TACP Association.
