You are invited to join the ECRC and Darkside Ruckers as we honor the legacy of all the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
On April 29, 2007, Travis Manion was killed by an enemy sniper while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) exists to carry on the legacy of character, service and leadership embodied by Travis and all those who have served and continue to serve our nation.
Travis’ words before leaving for his final deployment to Iraq “If Not Me, Then Who…” are a constant reminder for all of us to live with character and put other people’s interests before our own. This is a great opportunity to experience ruckership and serve those in need. Grab your rucksack, backpack, or any other suitable carry all and ruck up!
All F3ENC and FIA AO’s will be collecting supplies and donations to benefit our local homeless shelter the crossroads community center (CCC). They are in need of paper towels, tissue, napkins, plastic forks, spoons, knives & cups, as well as feminine hygiene products. If anyone wishes to make a monetary donation they can do so through MaBell’s paypal Freeze24@yahoo.com or by donating when you post at an F3 workout. On April 27th we will fill mason bags with supplies and ruck to CCC. Any donation can also be dropped off at the start point.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP: You can help in a number of ways. Of course you can pray for the success of this project. You can also donate supplies and or money at any AO or through paypal until April 27th. We are asking site Q’s to pass a hat at the after the COT/BOM. Lastly, you can participate in the ruck to help deliver the supplies. If you plan on rucking register here:
IS THERE A PATCH: Yes but you must register.
As always, safety of all is the number 1 priority. You are encouraged to wear reflective clothing or accessories, carry glow sticks, and use headlamps. Hope to see you there!
Remember the words of Travis Manion “If Not Me, Then Who..”
