100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Paige Josti – 100 Mile Ruck March Athlete
I am inspired by those who participated in this amazing event before me. This event is out of my comfort zone, and that is exactly what I want to face. I am have been so lucky to have two kind, smart, and healthy children. Come this fall, I will be an empty nester and facing a new phase in life…what better way to show my kids that you can continue to challenge yourself at any point. I cannot imagine the mental, physical, emotional toll that comes with having a child who is battling cancer. In this metaphoric challenge, I know I will face moments where I physically, mentally, and emotionally will want to give up…however, this life changing experience is just a drop in the bucket compared to what those who are dealing with pediatric cancer face.
I am a mother, a wife, a teacher, a student, a bartender, a lover of music, animals, and of living in the moment. Thank you for donating.
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.
