Rucking For Raiders
The Raider 7 is an elite group of Marine Raiders who perished in a helicopter crash during a training accident on March 10, 2015.
Rucking for Raiders will be conducting a 201.5-mile ruck march from Auburn, AL to Navarre, FL in memory of these fallen heroes. By honoring the Raider 7, Rucking Raiders will be raising money and donating 100% of the proceeds the Gold Star Families of these men. The Marines, Sailors, and Midshipman of the Auburn University NROTC will conduct the march on May 9th through May 12th with at least 45lbs on their backs, rain or shine.
“As I drove home today I thought of these men. I thought of their families. I realized just how fortunate I was to be heading home to spend time with my wife and three children. See I returned from Afghanistan with these men just months before that tragic day. That could have been me. That could have been any one of our fellow Marines. I would hope that if it were me, someone like SSgt Nathan Harris and the survivors of MSOT 8231 would be there for my family. I have been tremendously inspired by these men and the support that they have shown to the families of their fallen brothers, even through their own suffering. This is why we will ruck. This is why we will endure over 200 miles of pain. We will humanize that tragic loss of true patriots and we will support the families left behind! Always faithful, always forward.”
