Harper Virtual Ruck Challenge

Harper Virtual Ruck Challenge

From 2005-2017, an average of 165 veterans died by suicide in Illinois alone. To help raise awareness, we are asking everyone to ruck 1 mile.  “Ruck”, short for “rucksack”, is military slang for a backpack. Simply grab a backpack (or weighted vest), fill it with some sort of weight (books, weighted plates, supplies…anything!) and ruck at least one mile.  Please only carry what is safe to do so.  

Follow @Harpercollegesva, @harperstudentinvolvement and @harper_wellness on Instagram and post a photo of you rucking your mile and tell us why you ruck.

Our goal is to reach 165 miles by Friday and we can do that with all of your support.
