Ruck to Remember, producers of the annual march to Arlington National Cemetery known as 60 to 60, has announced their repeat partnership with Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW), naming OEW as one of the Official Charity Partners of their upcoming 2018 event.
As part of the partnership, a portion of event registrations will be donated to Operation Enduring Warrior to support their mission to honor, empower and motivate America’s wounded military service members. Additionally, the two organizations will work together to launch joint marketing initiatives in support of the partnership and athletes are encouraged to raise funds for OEW during the registration and training process.
"Operation Enduring Warrior is pleased to receive notice of our selection as a 2018 Ruck to Remember 60 to 60 Charity Partner,” said Kelly Farmer, VP of Communication for the organization. “Over the past four years Ruck to Remember and OEW have forged a vital partnership. Together we have covered hundreds of miles, honored many fallen service members, and sought to promote a camaraderie that so often goes missing in the post-military society. Ruck to Remember has been a cornerstone of our financial landscape. Since 2015 we have received more than $100,000 in donations as a result of this special partnership. No other entity has provided so much crucial financial support of our mission. We are deeply honored and truly value this alliance."
“Operation Enduring Warrior has been a great partner in helping Ruck to Remember grow our mission of honoring and remembering those that gave all and those coming home carry with them, their wounds of war,” said Keith Jolly, Founder & President of Ruck to Remember.
