By Rosalind Russell – The Second Annual Ruck 4 Remembrance March to raise funds and awareness of emergency providers and the challenges they face, both physically and mentally is set for Espanola.
Organizer Brandon Courtemanche says too many dedicated soldiers, officers, firefighters and paramedics are lost every year to illness, injury and suicide adding this local event was created to bring together people from all walks of life in support of Wounded Warriors Canada.
He says the ruck is a 22km walk in various terrain starting in Espanola on November 5th and he challenges vets, first responders, healthcare workers and/or any advocates of mental health to take part and help out the cause.
