RUCK 2 REMEMBER - Sept 12th

Comrades and friends,

For a few years now, Lino di Julio and his team of ruckers have been doing a four-day ruck in various locations throughout Ontario, visiting Legion Branches along the way, all to raise funds for the Ontario Command Homeless Veterans Fund.
Things are a little different this year. It'll just be Lino and one support person doing this year's march. They will be sleeping over Saturday September 12 at Branch 530, and the Lower hall will be open subject to capacity limits from 6pm to 8:30pm for this special occasion. BBQ’d burgers and sausages will be available.
You also support the cause in other ways. You can donate to the gofundme, send a cheque to Ontario Command with R2R in the memo, or even do the ruck yourself (you get thirty days to complete the 150 kilometres).

Below is a letter of explanation from Lino - 

Welcome Team!
Just wanted to extend a welcome and a thank-you to you for registering for the first ever Virtual Road To Recovery event!

The Road to Recovery ruck march itself has occurred annually for 7 years now and until now participation has always been isolated to the local area that we marched from so we're really excited to see how this virtual event goes! Some info for everyone to get started, this event is a fundraising event! All proceeds (Less the cost of the coin) from your registration goes to Operation Leave the Streets behind! (https://www.on.legion.ca/veterans-seniors/homeless-veterans-assistance )

We have worked with the legion for several years now and one of the principal reasons we keep coming back is because they are very transparent with us about where the funds go and we can confidently tell you that the funds we raise will go directly to helping get and keep veterans off the streets.

If you haven't joined a fundraising team you can do that here:
https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/road-to-recovery-7

You can either go solo, join one of the teams already registered, or start your own and recruit teammates! Either way, once you're setup you can send your individual link to friends and family to get them to help support the cause! (All donations over $20 are tax deductible) We can begin tracking distance on the 10th of September and you have until October 9th to complete all 150km.

The tracking can be done on the charity challenges website! It will appear as an option from the 10th on. to do this you will do the following
•Login to https://charitychallenges.org/
•Click 'Submit Activity'
•And fill out the appropriate distance
The Charity Challenges site will be the place of record for the distance travelled so please make sure you log your distances there once the event opens. If you're out training now or out putting up kilometres feel to take pics and post on social media! We'd love to share your progress! On Instagram you can tag us @ruck_to_remember and on Facebook you can tag Ruck.to.remember and use the hashtag #RoadToRecovery7 to make sure we catch you being a bunch of hard charging good humans!
