We're kicking off our third annual The Things They Carry Ruck March.
Click to see our donation and volunteer options.
The University of Iowa Veterans Association and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Student Veteran Organization are teaming up to raise awareness for US Military Veteran Suicide.While these two schools rival when it comes to football they have come together for a bigger cause.
The military Veteran students will coordinate a ruck march of the game ball from Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska 347 miles to Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa, for the November 23rd Cornhusker vs. Hawkeye football game.
Our Ruckers will be carrying 20 lbs to honor the 20 Veterans who take their own lives every day. The 20 lbs will be comprised of personal belongings of the volunteer ruck marchers. These belongings will hold personal significance to their military experiences, or honor the service of friends or family.
The 347 mile ruck march will kick off on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018. Team Nebraska will hand off the game ball to Team Iowa on Sunday, November 19th at Freedom Rock 1199 IA-25 Menlo, Iowa.
