Packing List

  • 20 pounds minimum ruck weight
  • Reflectors on Ruck
  • Headlamp
  • Extra batteries
  • Index card with emergency contact information and any other pertinent information
  • Full water bladder
  • Nalgene water bottle

The purpose of this ruck will be to appreciate what our bodies can do and push them further.

Total ruck distance will be between 10 and 15 miles for the entire 6 hours.

The service project portion will be in support of a local charity, Braedan’s Bridge. Braedan is a 13 year old boy from Oregon, Ohio who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2011. Duchenne affects 1 in every 3,500 male births. These boys become confined to wheelchairs in their teens, and typically never see their 21st birthday. There is no known cure.

Braedan’s Bridge hosts an annual casino night at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter  in October to raise funds to find a cure for Duchenne. We will have the opportunity to learn how we can help volunteer or donate at the ruck.
