Headquartered in Vero Beach, Florida, #DoYouGiveARuck? is a group of military veterans and supporters dedicated to making the lives of veterans better through raising public awareness and fund raising for organizations whose programs and activities support veterans.
Some Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airman returning from the Global War on Terror are returning to a society they are having trouble adjusting to after the rigors of military service in a war zone, many are finding themselves unemployed, homeless, or just struggling to survive. At this point in the their transition to civilian life a little help at just the right time can make all the difference, and we want to provide that support.
Our primary method of doing this is through organized Ruck Marches on the Florida Treasure Coast open to the public where we raise funds through sponsors and collect material items from those participating in the ruck. These funds and materials, such as food or school supplies, are then redistributed to other agencies with programs that assist veterans.
Secondarily veterans often feel lost without a mission, our group provides young veterans an opportunity to participate in a organization that understands the military way of life and allows them to feel like they are making a difference in the world. This is especially important to those who suffered injuries that leave them disabled and feeling like they are no longer a productive member of society.
We hope you will consider showing your support by participating in one of our upcoming events.
