Lino Di Julio
IT BEGAN WITH A TASK ON JULY 20, 2014
Volunteers from multiple walks of life came from all over to partake in a ruck that took place over a distance of 303 kilometers and a span of seven days. These volunteers rucked 158 bricks from Hamilton, Ontario, where the organization was founded, to the Legion Hall in Parry Sound, Ontario. Each brick was engraved with the name of a Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan. This ruck was used to create awareness and support for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and to raise funds to build a retreat in Parry Sound for PTSD. This event was titled as Road To Recovery, which was the first event hosted by Ruck To Remember.
Ruck To Remember is an organization that serves as a tribute and support to those who have served as a front line responder or military in the present, past, and future. Ruck To Remember is about creating awareness and support for those within our front line responders, which include, Paramedics, Firefighters, Law Enforcement, and Military. Ruck To Remember will host an annual ruck and also take part in multiple events and fundraising hosted by others throughout the year to continue raising awareness and support.
This year we're doing it again, 2km for every fallen hero the year prior, starting in Hamilton and heading east. Proceeds from the event help the Legion keep veterans off the streets and that is the least we can do for those who have served.
If you agree, donate and share the cause.
