Get ready! Rucking for Raiders will be conducting its 5th Annual Memorial March this spring. The dates of the event will be May 4- May 7, 2021.
It is our full intention to conduct our traditional 209 mile ruck from Auburn, AL to the Blackhawk Memorial in Navarre, FL.
Details: The event begins on May 4th at 7:00 a.m. CST and ends on May 7th at 10:00 a.m. CST. We will hold a brief ceremony at the Blackhawk Memorial following the conclusion of the ruck.
Last year was an amazing success. In total, we were able to raise $22,896.94. That means that we have raised $69,042.38 in just 4 years! 100% of those funds went to the Marine Raider Foundation with the purpose of supporting the Gold Star families of fallen Marine Raiders, as well as Marine Raiders, through the Tragedy Assistance & Survivor Support Program, the Family Resiliency Program, and the Raider Legacy Preservation Program.
We are extremely excited about this year! Stay tuned for more updates as the event gets closer!
From Brandon Kay of Rucking for Raiders:
Good afternoon and happy 2021 R4R family! I hope all has been well with your families and the New Year has brought many blessings. We are excited, yet sad, to announce the kick off of our 5th and final memorial ruck from Auburn. Yes, you read that right. This year will be the final year Dan and myself can commit our full attention this campaign deserves. We have overcome so much in these five years. From the start up and step off of our first ruck in 2016, to virtually rucking all over the U.S. last year. Let’s end this year’s ruck with a bang! That being said, onto the exciting stuff! The ruck will take place May 4th-7th. We cannot express our joy to be able to do this year’s ruck side by side as a family again. This year’s shirt designs are already underway! And the first benefit night, which will be next month, is being arranged. Now let’s shake off that quarantine weight 😆, get our rucking legs moving 🏃♀️🏃♂️, and get ready for the best campaign year yet!
