RUCK TO REMEMBER 60 to 60 wrote -
A Mission of Remembrance – Patriots from all over the country descend into our Nation’s Capital at the start of Memorial Day Weekend - Trekking 60 miles from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia over rugged terrain and down into Washington DC in the early hours of Memorial Day morning – for a sunrise "FINAL MISSION" over Memorial Bridge into Arlington National Cemetery (section 60).
The 60 to 60 is not just an event – it’s a Mission to raise awareness and highlight the strength, commitment of our war-fighters and unite the Country with our mission to HONOR - EMPOWER & NEVER FORGET the sacrifices made in the defense of our Freedoms while always remembering those that paid the ultimate sacrifice and to raise awareness to those that continue to endure the sacrifices of battle.
In the 4th Annual Ruck to Remember - 60 to 60 is excited to partner with Veteran Empowering Charity - OPERATION ENDURING WARRIOR (OEW).
Fisher House Foundation builds comfort homes where military & veterans families can stay free of charge, while a loved one is in the hospital.
These homes are located at military and VA medical centers around the world.
Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room.
Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $407 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
You don't have to be a "Team Athlete" to be part of the 60 to 60 Team. Helping us raise awareness and money - with 100% going to the Cause - our team and our mission extends far beyond Memorial Day weekend. Help us help and HONOR Them!
