Ruck4HIT

Thank You for Making the 2022 Ruck4HIT a Success!

At the end of April, 13 teams made their way through every town on Cape Cod, rucking over 200 miles over the course of 36 hours. In the process, they helped make our 7th Annual Ruck4HIT the most successful one yet!

Together, we raised over $200,000 that will offer healing, strengthen relationships, build community, and empower veterans, service members, and military families in our region. We concluded the 2-day event with a Finish Line Party at Cape Cod Coffee in Mashpee Commons with live entertainment featuring Rick Lockwood, Beautiful Tuesday, and Carly Tefft.

Thank you to all who donated their time, efforts, talents, resources, and money to the 2022 Ruck4HIT. If you’re interested in getting involved in our 2023 Ruck4HIT as a rucker, night support runner, driver, volunteer, or sponsor, email us at ruck@heroesintransition.org.

About the Ruck4HIT

In the spring of 2023, Heroes In Transition will hold its 8th Annual Ruck4HIT. A team-based ruck relay, the event will have teams run 200+ miles through all 15 towns on the Cape, starting in Bourne. The race will conclude roughly 36 hours later with a Finish Line Party. From Bourne, participants will ruck to the tip of the Cape in Provincetown where the first team challenge — climbing the Pilgrim Monument together — will occur. Teams will then head towards the finish line in Mashpee to celebrate what they accomplished together.

Each athlete will run 2-4 miles at a time with a 10- to 20-pound rucksack on his/her back. The rucksack is symbolic of the burdens our military and veterans make and have made in service to our country.

Why do we Ruck?

4 Those Who Can’t

Mission Statement:

Ruck4HIT was created in collaboration with supporters, local veterans, and individuals currently serving to raise awareness and funds for Heroes In Transition and their programs which provide critical assistance to service members, veterans, and military families. As every service member is forced to carry the burden of war during active service and beyond, carrying the rucksack is symbolic of hardships endured and the perseverance required to complete the mission, all in the continuing effort to never leave a fallen comrade behind.
