Description

A 60 mile Ruck March relay from the Nevada State Capital to the Fernley Veterans Memorial Cemetary to commemorate Memorial Day Weekend.

Event Details

The Truckee Meadows Veterans Club of TMCC is partnering with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebel Veterans to execute Operation Battle Born: Ruck to Remember 2022 in honor of the fallen heroes from the Global War on Terrorism. Over the course of 3 days, veterans and volunteers from across the state will take turns carrying two rucksacks that share nearly 7,000 service member dog tags to include the 58 fallen Nevadans that have made the ultimate sacrifice since September 11th. In their honor, we will march from the Nevada State Capital to the Fernley Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Participants will be asked to challenge themselves physically and mentally, facing the heat and the weight of the fallen heroes on their backs. Help us as we march for those who fought and sacrificed for our freedom. Just as they never waivered in their service to our country, we cannot waiver in our recognition of their sacrifice.

Event shirts are only available to registered participants.
