Rucking for Rescues (200+ mile)

I am an active duty and Iraq war veteran. Over a year ago I rejoined back into the military. I felt as though I had much more to offer. For quite some time I have been filling my mind with the process to combat Human Trafficking. Which includes combating  against sex, labor and organ trafficking. First it was just an interest and now has become an obsession. At this time we are trying to start up a new Organization to rescue these women and children as well as men. I will be conducting a 200+ mile ruck with 50 pounds on my back and boots on my feet. All money will be for this new start up! I will be rucking from the Springfield Cardinals Stadium here in Springfield, Mo and will end the 4-6 day long journey at the St. Louis Cardinals Stadium in St Louis, Mo. All to raise money to get this mission started! Thank you for your support! Let’s all come together and make this happen! Thank you!
