100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Lisa West – 100 Mile Ruck March Athlete
Last year I had the pleasure of attending the 2022 Ruck documentary in honor of my friend that completed the 100 miles. I was so moved and inspired by all the athletes emotional connection to do the Ruck for Why Me and Sherry’s House. They all poured their heart and soul into all their efforts over the course of the 4 days during the heat wave last July. I am very humbled by all of them, I plan to push myself to do everything I physically can to complete this 100 mile Ruck over 4 days this July. In addition to why I’m doing this is not just to push myself in conquering a goal I’ve set for myself, but in memory of those in my life that have battled Cancer and lost the fight and for those in my life that are currently fighting Cancer. If I can contribute a glimpse of hope, awareness and support to a worthy cause, then I’ve done my part. I share this passion with my father, who always wanted to support the cause for children with Cancer. With the help from my friends and family I look forward to achieving the goal I have set for myself. I would like to thank all those who have generously donated already to my Ruck, I greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you in advance, I look forward to seeing everyone at the finish line on July 23rd.
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.
