100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
100 Mile Ruck March Challenge – Brenda Couture
I am so excited to be doing this 100 Mile Ruck Challenge. I am doing this challenge for so many people in my life that have been affected by Cancer but one very special person who is still fighting the fight and his Cancer battle is on going. This person is so near and dear to my heart. He is my own personal Superman aka Stephen Dadah. He has helped so many people with so many different things. He thinks of everyone else before himself and has always been there for me. He has been battling cancer for several years now and recently has gone under yet another surgery. No matter what life throws at him he is always positive and still wants to help everyone else. So I am doing this 100 mile Ruck for him. If he can endure all he has gone through and still is so positive then I can do this 100 mile Ruck. I know Stephen would want to help as many children and their families as possible fighting this same disease. Since he is unable to do something like this. I will do it for both of us and raise the money to help Why Me and Sherry House!
Please contribute if you are able to. All the money I raise goes directly towards assisting and improving the lives of a family in their daily fight against childhood cancer. Every dollar truly does make a difference. Thank you so much for all your support!!!
A ruck march is a military term for walking with a weighted rucksack, essentially a big backpack, Rucking often implies traveling long distances while carrying what you need to survive.
The 100 Mile Ruck March Challenge is a military inspired event, where a small group of Athletes will Ruck (hike) 25 miles a day for 4 days. Camping out each night on the farm of a local brewery and continuing the march at sunrise each morning. Athletes will carry everything they will need for this 4-day event on their backs, navigate the 100 mile course, cook their own meals, set up and break down their own camps each night, tend to their feet and bodies, all in an attempt to earn the coveted 100 Mile Ruck March Finisher Medal.
