There is no fundraising requirement in 2017 –But as a teammate please fundraising helps raise more then money, it helps raise awareness.   Honestly we do this to not only help families of the fallen and to empower those coming home with wounds of war – but also to extend our mission awareness.  However, whether you raise $5 or $5000 – you are a member of the Team that will be part of our mission to raise awareness. 






REMEMBER - Signing up is the first step and the hardest –

Please join the Ruck To Remember Facebook Community Page where team members will collaborate on gear, strategy, and fundraising ideas!  Either way getting to know your teammates, early is always a good thing!
