What is Ruck March?

Approximately 8000 veterans /military members succumb to PTSD each year! These numbers are staggering and unacceptable! 

Since the formation Adopt a Soldier in 2012, military families and Veterans have increasingly  contacted our organization regarding PTSD and Veteran Suicide. In 2016 we hosted  our first Ruck March. Our March was a combination of veterans, current military and one pre-basic training soldier, a total of 12 to be exact! They walked 22 miles, one mile for each Veteran/military member who took their own life due to PTSD.  It was that event that began our Battle against PTSD & Veteran suicide. 

We have learned so much from our veterans, young & old, along with our  military families living with this everyday! As stated above, awareness is not enough!

   His Daddy is not just number 
    Walk for them,
