The 7th Annual Ruck ‘N’ Run to celebrate U.S. Service Members takes place on Saturday (November 6th) in Republic.
Ruck ‘N’ Run is a nonprofit Veterans organization created by an Army Drill Sergeant.
The boot camp inspired walk/run gives the community a tangible way to honor and engage with our local Veterans.
So far, the group has donated more than $18,000 and more than 8,700 pounds of food to help Veterans in need.
The group has also created the Military Kids scholarship, which will be awarded to two local high school students during the event. The food lasts as least six months for Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk.
The Opening Ceremony starts at 8:30 a.m.
