Operation Shell Shock is an event by DoYouGiveARuck.
This event will be a 20-mile coordinated ruck march from two convenient locations, Vero Beach City Hall and Port Saint Lucie City Hall. The two groups will march from those locations simultaneously to Fort Pierce City Hall in an effort to bring awareness to PTSD and Veteran Suicide. Both groups will launch at the same time and end at the same rally point, at the same time.
This event is open to civilians and Veterans. We will rest every 5 miles. If you can’t ruck the full 20 miles and want to ruck just a portion of it, you will be able to use the rest locations as drop off or pick up locations. This event is free to participate in and open to all age groups and those physically fit to march this distance. The march route will travel down beautiful A1A and will proceed rain or shine. This event is closed to sponsors.
This event is to honor our brothers and sisters who struggle with PTSD and for those who have lost the fight to PTSD. If you have lost a family member or friend and wish to honor them in this event, we ask that you submit their name to us or provide a ribbon with bearing their name that we can attach to our packs. We will also ask for names of friends and family members who are struggling with PTSD to attach them to our packs as well. To submit the names please email us at email@example.com.
