Ruck Forward 10th Anniversary 'KIA Never Forgotten'


Come out and help bring awareness to the '22 a day' suicide epidemic within our active Military and Veterans by participating in this 22K and 5K Ruck and Walk. This year the Ruck/Walk will give 10% of donations received to the VFW Post 7835 Auxiliary Fund and 90% to the new Hood County Fallen Veterans Memorial project (, 501(c)(3). This project of erecting a granite memorial will honor our fallen heroes that were born or raised in Hood County. It currently has a designated location on the SW corner of the Hood County Courthouse lawn thanks to our County Judge and Commissioners. A t-shirt and hot dog meal will be provided to all paying participants of the Ruck/Walk. Deadline to enter is August 1, 2022. Ruck/Walk will be on October 1, 2022. Please go to our Facebook page for updates and registration instructions.
