GratitudeAmerica Ruck March for Veterans
February 23, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
GratitudeAmerica Ruck March for Veterans is a Ruck-March (hiking) event to support GratitudeAmerica, a veteran charity on Amelia Island.
Individuals or teams ruck-march for 4.5 miles while carrying weight that symbolizes the burden that many veterans carry post-war or post-trauma.
You can carry anything from a backpack (ruck) with weights, or a flag, or a tribute to a servicemember in your life.
All proceeds will go directly to funding a combat veteran retreat on Amelia Island.
Participants will be treated to a beautiful course that begins under ancient live oak trees, stretches to the beach at low tide and, finishes with a beach bonfire. Each registrant will receive a super soft tri-blend t-shirt and ruck patch. Registration is $35
