March for veteran mental health awareness.

September is Suicide Prevention Month! The purpose of this ruck march is to raise awareness about veteran mental health and suicide. Current statistics show that 17 veterans die by suicide every day. To symbolize this, we are asking participants to carry a 17 lb rucksack.

Entrance fees will be waived for participants. Registration will begin at 9:00 AM at the CCC building. The hike begins at 10:00 AM and will be approximately 1.5 miles. Participants will be responsible for bringing their own rucksacks and weight. Water and light refreshments will be provided.
