100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Rick’s 100 Mile Ruck March – Fundraiser for Childhood Cancer
As the cloud of COVID starts to pass and our collective trials and tribulations hopefully are left in the rear-view mirror, we need to look forward to a brighter tomorrow. For many families, however, that journey forward isn’t as easy when their child is battling another silent killer, Cancer.
So, what can we do to help?
I’m donating time and likely some blood, sweat and tears to complete this year’s 100 Mile Ruck March Challenge.
PLEDGE NOW and together we can help raise awareness and support for these children and their families as they battle this disease.
All donations go to Why Me & Sherry’s House which is a fantastic organization whose mission is to provide these kids and their families with the needed lodging, care, and support during their fight. No donation is too big or too small and every dollar will make a difference in the life of one of these children.
Thank you for your support!!!
What is a Ruck March you ask?…
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 to earn the coveted 100 Mile Ruck March Finisher Medal.
