Kirk Deligiannis (aka Mettle Forger) was one of the original founders of Charity Challenges and an overall incredible human being. Not only was he a positive and motivating person but he was also the epitome of what someone in the GORUCK community should strive to be.
Kirk passed away shortly after completing SEALFIT Kokoro in September of 2016. GORUCK has three total fundraisers going right now which includes two events (both a Tough and a Light) as well as a memorial shirt for Kirk. All of the proceeds from the sales will be going to the incredible family that he left behind.
The memorial shirt features one of the best quotes from Kirk as well as his iconic profile picture with him standing holding the American flag
The front of the shirt features the GORUCK Spearhead along with “FOR KIRK” which has been an often said motto since his passing. The hashtags #ForKirk and #RepsForKirk have been used frequently within the PATHFINDER and Charity Challenges communities. If you need a new shirt or want to support Kirk’s incredible family please consider buying one of these.
