Chicago Veterans Ruck March 2021
Every Memorial Day weekend, veterans, family members, and supporters from all over the United States come together to walk 20 miles to honor and remember the service members we lost at home and on the battlefield. Our 20-mile hike represents the 20 veterans we lose every single day to suicide.
This year we are hosting our Ruck March a little differently. Instead of one day, our event will expand across 4 days with different level routes across the Chicagoland area. You can finish your 20-miles in one day or split it up between all 4, starting on Friday, May 28th, and ending on Monday, May 31st.
We encourage you to join one of the suggested routes or explore a new neighborhood, hike in the forest preserve, walk along the beach or along a trail. Be sure to take photos and videos to share them with everyone during your walk. We will have community partners opening their doors during the weekend so be sure to stop by one of our many locations and meet some new friends.
