Suicide Awareness & Veterans Support in Ruck 22 5K March in Royal Oak, Ferndale and Hazel Park Nov. 1

Join the cities of Ferndale, Hazel Park and Royal Oak for a 5K ruck march through the three communities.


WHAT IS A RUCK MARCH?

A ruck march involves walking at a fast clip with a weighted backpack or ruck. In the Armed Forces, participants carry at least 45 pounds in their rucks.

For this event, we are asking participants to carry at least 22 pounds or 22 items.


WHY 22?

On average, 22 veterans commit suicide in the United States.
By carrying at least 22 pounds of food or 22 personal items, we show our support for our veterans.
If we all carry the burden, no one has to do it alone.


REGISTER

Entry fee is $22 for adults and includes a t-shirt
Entry fee is FREE (does not include T-shirt) for active and retired military and children 10 or $5 with a T-shirt. (Please note shirts are only available in adult sizes).
