Join Mother RUCKer at the 2nd Annual Bigfoot RUCK Event on October 1st, 2023, at the Orting Skate Park in Orting, Washington. Cassie, an Army Veteran and the founder of Mother RUCKer, personally invites you and your family to this exciting event that aims to optimize health, inspire others, and support a worthy cause.
But what exactly is a RUCK? It's a weighted backpack and miles under your feet. Rucking is a modern twist on an age-old exercise, involving walking or hiking with a weighted backpack. By adding extra weight to your walk, rucking increases the intensity of your workout.
One of the benefits of rucking is that it puts less stress on your knees compared to running, making it a low-impact exercise. Additionally, the added weight engages your muscles more, making rucking an excellent cardiovascular exercise that helps build strength and stamina. So, why not come out and RUCK with us?
The Bigfoot RUCK event offers an opportunity to build endurance, train alongside military veterans, and connect with empowered individuals from diverse backgrounds. By grounding your mind in nature and participating in this event, you can help others lead active and engaged lives—one Ruck at a time.
Mother RUCKer is proud to be part of the Race 2 Save Veteran Lives (R2SVL) campaign, which falls under the National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide (NA2EVS) program.
