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.

Challenge:

All ages: Choose one small habit/action that you'd like to practice everyday, and do it! This one small habit/action can be part of a larger goal and will help you reach that goal. For example, do you have trouble doing your homework everyday? Well, decide to set up a time every single day that you will work on your homework, then designate a time period. You can say, "Every school day, I will sit at my desk and work on my homework for 10 minutes at 5pm." You can do this with a personal goal too! Do you want to finish the puzzle you've been working on, but there are 500 pieces and that is overwhelming? Tell yourself that you will put 5 pieces in the puzzle each day. It may take a long time, but by doing a little bit each day, you'll inevitably finish! This is exactly how EVERYONE achieves BIG things. Choose that small action and DO IT!
