EVENT SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Our mission is to Honor and Remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice & Empower & Inspire those that made it home wearing the wounds of war. We do this through a “show of force” known as the 60 to 60 – where civilians and veterans descend into the National Capitol region to take part in the 60 mile hike aka Ruck to Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery. This mission would not be possible without the help of our Patriot Sponsors – who provide the means for the operation to move forward and our mission to be accomplished.
In addition to the physical movement – Each year The Ruck to Remember Partners with a Veteran focused Charity to raise awareness & money in order to empower and honor the sacrifices paid by our Veterans past and present. Thus far the event has generated over $137,000 in donations to groups like Operation Enduring Warrior, The Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
We are excited about our 2016 Sponsors but we need your support too. Event Sponsorship will give you the opportunity to stay in front of your customers for the entire year — not just this one mission. Our aim is to provide as many resources as possible to proven charities doing outstanding work for our veteran community and accordingly we value all forms of sponsorships no matter the patriot level.
Now is the time to showcase your mission – products or services to professionals and other members of the armed services, community, outdoor enthusiast, endurance racer, runners, and racing community through multiple venues and events. Become part of our mission and see the community rally around your company and your “Show of Support.”
