Event Description

Basic Info: 

The WesternU COMP-Northwest Military Medical Student Association (MMSA) is bringing back our annual "The Ruck" fundraiser! Half of your $5 entry fee and half of any donations will go directly to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that runs multiple projects in support of America's veterans, and the other half of any funds raised will go to the COMP-Northwest MMSA to help fund military medical student attendance at future military medical conferences and future events like this. 5$ payment and any donations can be sent to the MMSA treasure's Venmo account: Ellie-wallace-6. Please put "The Ruck" as the payment comment. 

More Details:

We'll be rucking the Mark Slough Trail, a short but sweet 2.5 mile loop that you can run, walk or ruck (walk with a weighted pack). Come May 28th, active members of COMP-Northwest MMSA will complete the loop alongside as many of our classmates and professors as possible. We hope to do a group warmup before starting the loop so we thank you for participating in this special event as well as get limber for the jaunt. We will have some small snacks and prizes available such as gift cards to the one and only Hazela's Bakeshop, Western U swag, and more as well as stickers as a token of our gratitude for your support.
