Patch - GORUCK Tribe Kids (Monthly Subscription)Regular price $10.00
Since the first GORUCK Challenge in 2010, GORUCK has been synonymous with the harder, more adventurous path. To push yourself, and to be pushed. To find meaning in the beauty of shared adventures, to seek challenges that demand growth, to serve something greater than yourself. To be a part of a real community of people pushing each other a little more.
Kids have always been an important part of our GORUCK community - not as bystanders, but as kids who ruck alongside their family. Kids who like and need to lift heavy things. Kids who are looking to be of service to their community.
After introducing Tribe in January 2021, we heard a resounding cry to bring the same type of challenges to kids. As a result, Tribe Kids was born.
We've designed Tribe Kids to encourage children to enjoy the GORUCK way of life: get outside, sweat with your friends and family to stay fit, and find a way to serve something greater than yourself.
