[ARCHIVED] 5K Ruck March Honors Vets

Ruck 22 Logo 2018

Join the cities of Ferndale, Hazel Park and Royal Oak for a 5K ruck march through the three communities.


What is a Ruck March?


A ruck march involves walking at a fast clip with a weighted backpack or ruck. In the Armed Forces, participants carry at least 45 pounds in their rucks.

For this event, we are asking participants to carry at least 22 pounds or 22 items.


Why 22?



On average, 22 veterans commit suicide in the United States,By carrying at least 22 pounds of food or 22 personal items, we show our support for our veterans.
If we all carry the burden, no one has to do it alone.


Register



Entry fee is $22 for adults and includes a t-shirt.

Entry fee is FREE (does not include T-shirt) for active and retired military and children 10 or $5 with a T-shirt. (Please note shirts are only available in adult sizes).

T-shirts will have the event logo on the front; the number 22 is on the back. You can add your city's name -- Ferndale, Hazel Park or Royal Oak -- if you chose.

ALL monies from entry fees will be donated to the Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial. Food and other items will go to Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 154.
