"Making Sure No One Fights Alone"


Join us on the first annual "RUCK 22 WALK"  to help bring awareness to veteran's suffering with PTSD and veteran suicide. On Saturday May 28th, 2022, we will walk to honor those who suffer silently, those we have lost and those we hope to help.

Participants have three distances to choose from, 2.2 miles, 10k (6.2 miles), and 22 miles. The walk will begin promptly at 7:30 at the Veteran's War Memorial in Central Park in Elmwood, IL. The routes will lead you through Elmwood; past the Archie Miles Memorial in Elmwood Township Cemetery, Sergeant First Class John Pettit's resting place, past Elmwood High School and through various streets in town.
