About this event

The Ruck for Rugrats was created by an organization called the 5th Squad. This organization is made up of a group of combat veterans who 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 Children's of Mississippi Hospital that they are loved and not forgotten.
