100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Steve’s – 100 Mile Ruck March Fundraiser
I have never hiked past 10 miles…or even camped, but after witnessing the outcome and movement of this event during 2021 I knew I had to be a part of it this year.
Why Me Sherrys House is a Worcester-based nonprofit that helps families face the words “Your child has cancer”. For 36 years Why Me has supported families through the initial cancer diagnosis to all of the ongoing support needed both emotionally and financially.
I am excited to join this list of athletes to help spread awareness for the Why My Sherrys house and the families affected by childhood cancer.
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 in an attempt to earn the coveted 100 Mile Ruck March Finisher Medal.
Thank you for the support and I will see you at the events!!
