As part of the Call of Duty Endowment program that helps unemployed veterans find work, Warzone is hosting an in-game charity run. Free cosmetics are on offer as part of the Veteruns event, so here’s how to take part and raise money for charity just by playing Warzone.

Call of Duty Endowment raises money to help unemployed veterans find “high-quality jobs.” Charity fun runs are a common way to raise money for a cause, but the Veteruns event is unique in that it allows Warzone players to take part from the comfort of their own homes.

For every 10 kilometers run in Warzone, Activision are donating $1 to the Endowment “as part of a $1 million total donation.” By taking part, Warzone players can earn free Calling Cards, so here’s how to get your hands on them.

Warzone Veterun event challenges & free rewards

All Warzone players need to do to earn the free Veterun Calling Cards is travel on foot between May 26 and June 3, with there being a new reward unlocked for each milestone. They didn’t confirm if progress will be limited to Caldera, so it should work in Rebirth Island as well.

Here’s how far you need to run, and each free Calling Card you’ll earn:

  • 25 km — Rare bronze titled Calling Card
  • 50 km — Epic silver titled Calling Card
  • 100 km — Legendary gold titled Calling Card

Activision are paying up to $10 per player, so once you’ve received the gold Calling Card you’ve raised as much as you can during the event.

How to check event progress with Veterun report

Similar to how players can get their Warzone report, the Call of Duty Twitter account will tell you how many kilometers you’ve run, and how much money has been donated for your efforts.

Here’s everything you need to do:

  1. Log in to Twitter
  2. Tweet @CallofDuty with #CODVeteruns100K and your Activision ID
  3. The Call of Duty account will reply with your Veteruns report

This will provide you with your own customized image showing your username, the distance you’ve run, and the money raised. You can check out an example below.

Players can also register for their stats to be counted in the Top 100 Call of Duty Veteruns Leaderboard, where those who top the leaderboard will earn “out-of-game prizes,” but they haven’t revealed the prizes yet.
