100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Alex Silkman – 100 Mile Ruck March Athlete
This will be my second attempt at the 100 Mile Ruck March. Last year, I made it 2 days and 50 miles and it was one of the toughest things I’ve ever taken on. I’m looking forward to making the full 100 miles this year and volunteering myself to such a great cause once again. Please help me reach my goal again this year. All money goes directly to Why Me and Sherry’s House.

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.
100% of the proceeds go to Why Me & Sherry’s House a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to providing love and support services to families with childhood cancer. It’s run in part by parents that lived this experience first-hand, the dedicated staff and volunteers understand what families with a pediatric cancer patient need and are passionate about services provided.
