Patch - America Remembers RuckRegular price $20.00
AMERICA REMEMBERS RUCK
Anti-Virtual Fundraiser Ruck benefiting United War Veterans Council
The recent news coming out of Afghanistan has felt like a gut punch to so many - especially those individuals and families who served during the last two decades of the Global War on Terror.
On October 19, 2021, our partners at United War Veterans Council will organize a commemorative ruck march to pay tribute to the 20th Anniversary of the Global War on Terror taking place in New York City. This social fitness event will allow for veterans and veteran supporters to come together as a community in mutual support of one another during these difficult times. While it may feel strange to carry on with planned events, we contend this is when we need each other the most.
For those of you who can not make it to NYC, we are offering this Anti-Virtual ruck for you to show your support and solidarity with America’s Veterans as we pay tribute to the 20th Anniversary of the GWOT.
How It Works
Commit to rucking 11 miles. You pick the weight, how you break up the miles (or not), and (preferably) who you ruck the miles with together.
You will earn this special edition commemorative patch. Patch proceeds will benefit the United War Veterans Council and enable them to continue producing their calendar of events that honor veterans including the New York City Veterans Day Parade as well their weekly Health and Wellness program which is dedicated to healing at-risk veterans through holistic, therapeutic and social fitness based outings.
While rucking, tag your photos using #GWOT20RUCK and those photos will be used to create a GORUCK x UWVC video that will be aired during the Veterans Day TV broadcast on WABC-TV.
