Every day a Veteran chooses to end their lives. Are you ready to pick up a ruck and make a difference?
We will sweat, but in the end we will raise awareness, we will get some sponsorship, and have some fun along the way.

Basically any and all apparel that clearly shouts “Merica!!!” AMERICAN FLAGS AMERICAN FLAGS AMERICAN FLAGS!!! The more the merrier and the bigger the better!!
Important details: MUST BRING OWN WATER SOURCE; camel backs usually work best, canteens if you’re old school, water bottles etc. We’ll have Gatorade and water at the halfway marker, but you’re responsible for your own hydration for the duration of the ruck, AND bring plenty of moleskin and a spare pair of socks (to change at the halfway point) for those stanky feet cuz ya know ya gonna need em!!
Suggested: Bring an extra shirt for the afterparty or force all in attendance to realize that even your sweat glands are patriotic!!
Proceeds go directly to sponsor the next ruck march and events put on by UWS; as well as, sponsorship of the UWS Winter Retreat, which is provided at no cost to the Veteran. Each event provides a environment where Veterans can receive peer counseling, referrals to psychiatric programs, and homeless veterans outreach.
Still not sure what you’re getting into? Check out some photos from past Rucks, get motivated and come on out.
