Rucking 2 Remember our Nation’s service members KIA while fighting the war on terror.
Who is R2R?
R2R is everyone who chooses to be a part of the mission. It’s a team, a community and a family! People from different walks of life, of all ages, Civilians, Military, Police, Fire, Sport Therapists, Doctors, Nurses, and the list goes on. All coming together for a common goal. All dedicated to “mission accomplishment“.
What is the R2R mission?
The R2R mission is one of Honor and Remembrance. To date our Nation’s military has suffered +7,000 KIA in the , Global War On Terror (GWOT). R2R’s mission is to...
•Honor their memory
•Remember their sacrifice
We do this in a variety of ways.
•We Honor their memory by Rucking with a 45lb Ruck in Ultra races. Typically these are trail races covering varying distances. Each race is dedicated to honoring the memory of one or more of our Nation’s fallen service members.
•We Remember their sacrifice through R2R's Memorial Scholarship program. A representative of R2R will work closely with the families of the fallen service members, as well as the school administration from the high school each service member attended/graduated. The families are intimately involved in the process, from establishing the criteria to the presentation of the scholarship.
Why be a part of the R2R mission?
Simple: to be a part of something bigger than self! To give something back to our Nation’s service members and their families, that have given us much more than we can ever repay. However, by becoming a part of the R2R team through donations, sponsorship, by following on social media, etc...you are helping to give back to the families of our Nation’s fallen service members with more than a memory, a Flag to hold or a headstone to visit.
So, I challenge you to become a part of the R2R team!!
