For the October, 2020 Rucking Challenge GORUCK is partnering with the United War Veterans Council. The virtual rucking fundraiser directly contributes to the UWVC’s mission, which is to honor and support America’s veterans through health, wellness and education programs. Patches and shirts will be available for pre-order through Veterans Day, November 11th, 2020.
As with previous distance-based GORUCK rucking challenges this one has multiple options to register for. There’s 25 miles at $25, 50 miles at $50, 75 miles at $75, and 100 miles at (you guessed it) $100.
If you want to further support you can pre-order a shirt for $25 as well. The shirts have the patch design on the front and the GORUCK and UWVC logos on the back.
An interesting component to this rucking challenge is that UWVC will be taking out a page in the New York Daily News on Veterans Day and, if you pledge 50, 75, or 100 miles, you have the opportunity to honor a veteran of your choice. After your purchase, submit your veteran to be included here. Deadline for submission is 10/31. Planning on signing up for the event? Let me know in the comments!
