Nov. 9 – Ruck 22 March in Royal Oak to Prevent Veteran Suicide

Third Annual Ruck 22
Saturday November 9 | 10am Start

Help fight veteran suicide. Come to Royal Oak on the morning of Nov. 9 for the 3rd annual Ruck 22 March.

Here’s how it works: You take a backpack or rucksack, you fill it with either 22 lbs. or 22 items to donate to needy and homeless veterans. You march 2.2 miles (untimed and at your own pace). At the end, you hear about how you can personally help fight the tragedy of veteran suicide.

Why? On average, 22 veterans and soldiers commit suicide every single day, a rate far higher than the national average. Together we can raise awareness of this problem and learn techniques to help those in need and spot the warning signs.

It’s $22 to sign up and you get a shirt, dog tags, and bracelet, and there are food and drink at the end for participants. The proceeds go to the Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial and the donated items go directly to needy and homeless vets. It’s fun, you’re helping a worthy cause, and your participation really does make a difference.

To register and for information on what type of things are needed for donations to help needy and homeless vets, go to www.22ruck.com.
