100 Mile Ruck March Challenge – Jason Monette
I am honored to be accepted to participate in this amazing fundraising event. I was so impressed with last year’s ruck march that I was motivated to join the 2022 event. My heart goes out to all the children and families battling such an awful disease. I can’t even imagine what these families have to go through each and every day battling childhood cancer. I am inspired by their strength and perseverance. The support offered by Why Me & Sherry’s House is admirable, every dollar raised by this event will help these families in some way.
What is a Ruck March?
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.
