FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of group hikes known as ruck marches designed to raise awareness of veteran needs, promote community in the heart of our nation, and honor those who have sacrificed to dutifully serve our country in both military and public service. CRT announced their second year of partnership with Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW), in hopes of expanding the OEW footprint and expanding the impact to our military veteran population during the upcoming 2018 event schedule.
"Operation Enduring Warrior is fortunate to have a team member as dedicated as Danny Stokes is to our mission. There are hours and hours of time and effort required to produce, oversee, and execute an endeavor as large as this one. We were delighted to receive notice earlier this year of the current spin on last year’s highly successful series known as the Capital Ruck Tour,” said Kelly Farmer, VP of Communication for the organization. “The Capital Ruck Tour 2017 was a phenomenal event of 53 stops, approximately 600 participants altogether, 1000+ miles, and over $10,000 raised for OEW. The 2018 twist, generically named City Ruck Tour, allows for events in non-Capital cities in addition to or in place of the state’s Capital. It keeps the tour fresh and new for those participants who rucked with us last year. This year’s stops will also involve a much greater OEW presence with many members of our organization contributing their leadership and planning skills to make the event a success.”

About City Ruck Tour:
The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission. The average distance will be 12 miles at a 20 minute per mile pace, carrying a backpack weighing 10-20 pounds (the participant may choose how much to carry.) Local police officers will be integrated into each event, as a means to leverage the military community to assist the Law Enforcement community with matters such as traumatic stress and behavioral health.
