Event description
#RuckForJohn

About this Event

As most in this city know, our beloved Marine and Team RWB Eagle MgySgt John Escalante was gravely injured last week. While lucky to be alive, his road to recovery will be long, exhaustive, and extensive. There will be a time for health care fundraising, right now he needs the strength to continue this fight. We may be Army Week Association, but he's one of ours. And he needs all of us, in a "purple" joint force effort. So we will band together, in the sole time that Fleet Week and Army Week will merge, and #RuckForJohn. Anyone that knows him, knows what the Marine Corps, RWB community, physical competition, and representation by push-up means to Johnny. So we will start at the Empire State Building and finish at his favorite spot in the city - The World Trade Center - where we will finish with 22 push-ups. Before he was injured, every day on social media he was bringing awareness to the Veteran Suicide struggle by doing push-ups. We will continue his fight for his brothers and sisters until he can retake the mantle. The first 150 registrants will receive a custom patch for this event honoring John. Afterwards, we will move to O'Hara's to staple a patch to the wall and have a drink for our brother.
