Brian McGuirt – 100 Mile Ruck March Athlete
The great chief Tecumseh was once quoted in a speech saying to “Seek to make your life long, and its purpose in the service of your people.” And I hope that I can do that in this way, however small.
Hey everyone, my name is Brian, and I am a long-distance hiker and retired military veteran who needs your help raising money for this extraordinary nonprofit. Below you can read all about this event and why it’s important. I am counting on my friends & family, my fellow long-distance hikers & military family, and the generosity of strangers to help me reach this goal and help the children that need our help the most. No donation is too small, and all help this organization one dollar at a time. Thank you to all who help with a donation and a share, it means so much to me and even more to the kids that it will help.
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.
