GORUCK FOR GOOD
Organized by: Value Of Action
WHAT IS THE MISSION OF OUR COMPAIGN?
"We beleive in our veterans, their mindset and discipline. We did not serve, our service is to raise funds to help them and their families, that is our THANK YOU."
100% of the proceeds go to veteran and service member foundations. We do not have a board or staff, we are two guys who want to raise money to support people we look up to.
This specific fundraiser will end on 09/14/14. Our GORUCK Challenge is 09/12/14. We will donate 70% to the "John Peck Fund", 10% to "VETSPORTS", 10% to "SOWF", and 10% to "OUR BRAVEST." That is right, 100% of the proceeds is donated, we volunteer our time and efforts as our Thank You.
GORUCK FOR GOOD is started by civilians who wanted a reason to change their lives, as well as others. We are not veterans, but we research the amazing skill-set that these warriors posses, to help us grow in our daily lives. We have veteran and first responder friends and family, that we look to honor by taking action. We do not have a forum to give back, to save lives, to create brotherhood.... on a level that military and first responders do in their career paths. This is our way of showing respect to help positively contribute to the greater good.
70% of our funds this year is for John Peck, a Marine Corp Veteran who was severally injured by and IED blast, and is now a quad amputee. (www.http://www.johnpeckfund.org/about) The John Peck Fund was established to support his financial needs during intensive medical procedures, such as an experimental double arm transplant, for which he finally has been approved for. Due to the nature of the surgery, most charities and insurance does not cover all costs, we are helping push him across the finish line.
10% will be given to VETSPORTS. A charity that promotes the recovery of wounded veterans through an active lifestyle. Returning them back into a world of teamwork and physical activity.
10% will be given to SOWF. "Special Operations Warrior Foundation." This organization has countless programs. The one we fell in love with is their pledge that "The SOWF has made a pledge to every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine who is serving in special operations, that if they should lose their life in the line of duty, the foundation will ensure their children receive a college education."
The remaining 10% will be given to "OUR BRAVEST." We have done work with them in the past. This organization builds custom homes for severely disabled veterans who have limited function due to their injuries.
Please help us spread awareness for GORUCK, while raising money to support the men and woman who choose to remain nameless, sacrificing on a level that few can understand.
What does GORUCK have to do with our Fundraiser?
GORUCK is a company founded by retired special forces green beret, Jason McCarthy. GORUCK gives back to several charities and provides jobs for dozens of veterans. GORUCK is BADASS. Offering some of the most challenging physical and mental competitions available. Where civilians push their limits..Similar to a Spartan Race or Tough Mudder, but based upon the concept of teamwork and miltiary style PT, GORUCK offers several levels of intense endurance events. Where civilians can get a taste of a day in the life of a special forces trainee, pushing their mind and body, to expand what their perceived limitations are. GORUCK is increasing in popularity as one of the toughest fitness events available to the public. GORUCK is a brand, a way of life, and 21st century embodiment of old school grit and compassion. We felt the need to challange ourselves to bring awareness to our pledge to support. GORUCK is the conduit to strick up interest and give us a reason to train at an elevated level.

WHO ARE THE FOUNDERS OF GORUCK FOR GOOD, and the VALUE OF ACTION?
So where do Ryan and Jorge fit into this, what is our pledge to this cause? Well were just average dudes who want to be better everyday, on a quest for greatness in our lives. We believe in giving back and helping others who deserve it. We believe in practicing what we preach, and we lead by example. Nothing makes us different, we are not super athletes, but we believe in the "Value of Action." We simply feel we can raise money and awareness by creating this campaign and the related videos that are attached to it. GORUCK provides us with a foundation for discipline, focus, physical and mental training. Ryan and Jorge were introduced to GORUCK through their fitness training mentors, and instantly they fell in love with the mission of the organization. This is our first challenge so we do not know what to expect, all we know is quitting is not an option!! #KeepOnClimbing #OneStepCloserToGreatness.
