Rucking For Green Beret Foundation Fundraiser
Army Special Forces, also known as the Green Berets, are deployed to more than 100 countries at any given time, and remain constantly engaged in conflicts across the globe. Not just Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Syria — all the conflicts you’ve never heard about, too. Since 9/11, over 60% of all casualties in Special Operations have been Green Berets, and 173 Green Berets have fallen while serving America and our way of life.
The Green Beret Foundation fills the support gaps for Special Forces soldiers and their families in their times of greatest need, whether that means loss or long-term care. We at GORUCK are proud and honored to support the GBF, and have since our founding. Our founder Jason McCarthy is a former Green Beret and serves on the GBF Board of Directors, and over half of all GORUCK Cadre are current and former Green Berets.
This rucking virtual fundraiser supports the Green Beret Foundation and gets you out rucking, which is the foundation of Special Forces training. Pick your distance and do the work. Win win.

The Green Beret Foundation Mission
The Green Beret Foundation serves the Army’s Special Forces, our nation’s most elite soldiers, by connecting them with the resources they need to succeed in the mission ahead.
We believe Green Berets are our nation’s greatest assets. Every day, we honor our commitment to Green Berets past and present, as well as their families, by connecting them with the right resources to prosper and thrive. Because when these soldiers meet powerful opportunities, our nation’s most elite soldiers become our nation’s best leaders.
100% of net proceeds made to the Green Beret Foundation will pass through Java Forever, GORUCK’s 501(c)(3) non-profit. GORUCK will publish the donation amount upon completion of this virtual fundraiser.
