Perpetuate

Perpetuate

<per-pet-chew-ate>

maintain; continue; prolong

something unending that is usually considered bad.

The waves will perpetuate an assault on my sand castle until it is gone.

Memory trick:
Perpetuate reminds of perpetual as in perpetual motion

At work:
You must not perpetuate the pilfering of office supplies.
