Event description

Description

The Ruck for Rugrats was created by an organization called the 5th Squad. This organization is made up of a group of combat veterans that wanted to do something for children that are set apart during the holidays due to their illnesses. Veterans often feel set apart because of their combat experiences. The 5th Squad wanted to show the children of Batson Children’s Hospital that they are loved and not forgotten.

Toy donations can be made between 1-30 November at many locations. The USPFO Jackson, Wilson Auto Group, Cups Flowood, schools, churches and law enforcement offices.

All military members, past and present, are welcome to participate in the ruck march. Everyone is encouraged to donate a toy for the event. The ruck march will be at about an 18 minute mile pace. There will be a trail vehicle and a medic if anyone needs support along the route. The ruck march will begin in the Dogwood area in front of Target.

The Ruck for Rugrats will be $20 per participant. The cost will include the T-shirt. Sign up by 30 November 2017 to insure you get a T-Shirt. All proceeds for the shirt sales will go to Batson Children's Hospital.
