The Nearly Naked Ruck March on March 30th resembles the 10-mile march that service people have to do.

Service people do way more than 10 miles, and their pack carries what they will sleep with, eat, drink, clothing, and other things they will need at their location. This Ruck is the civilian version and a fundraiser for 23rd Veteran.

23rd Veteran, a Duluth area nonprofit organization, will host the fourth annual Duluth Nearly Naked Ruck March on Saturday, March 30th at 10:00 am around Enger Tower on Skyline Pkwy wearing nothing but boots, hats, gloves, and long underwear. It won't be 10 miles, only a one-mile scenic march.

Since 9/11/01, over 6,000 military members have died in service. In that same timeframe over 130,000 veterans have committed suicide. This fundraising event will allow local veterans to participate in a 14- week reconditioning program to live happier and more successful in our civilian society.

23rd Veteran helps veterans recondition their brains for civilian life through the program
called 23V Recon. It costs $2,300 to send one veteran through this life-changing program. All money fundraised by ruckers goes directly to supporting 23V Recon. 23rd Veteran also performs educational seminars that teach the community how to create a friendlier environment for our veterans.

 

Here's me doing the march, the date is wrong, this was filmed a couple of years ago.
