Veteran Suicide Awareness Ruck March
The 11th annual Wisconsin Veteran Suicide Awareness March will be held on Saturday, November 11th with a start and finish point of the KI Convention Center. We will travel along the Fox River Trail through Green Bay, Allouez and De Pere.
This event is about joining together as a team to fight against Veteran suicide. There will be no prizes for finishing 1st, 2nd or 3rd. However, we will recognize those who go above and beyond in their fundraising efforts to better help H.O.O.A.H. WI fight against Veteran suicide. Those who raise over $1,000 in pledges for the march will be recognized before and after the completion of the march with a special award for their efforts.
