5th Annual Freedom Ruck

Richmond, VA – 01/05/2018 @ 0730 EST – Victor Wise, son of a retired First Sergeant and Operation Enduring Freedom veteran, will embark on his fifth “Freedom Ruck,” a physical challenge he hopes will inspire patriotism and support for our servicemen and women, on Friday, January 5 at 7:30AM EST. 

Wise, Russell Wilson’s Manager and COO of West2East Empire, will fly from Seattle, WA to begin his Freedom Ruck at the Virginia War Memorial in downtown Richmond, VA and continue north along Route 1, finishing at Arlington National Cemetery. Fellow patriots Alex Miller, James Lafferty, Mark Zurat, Wayne Paxton, and Robert Davies look to accompany Victor for the ruck in its entirety.

Proud Americans with a tremendous amount of respect for those who serve their country, Wise and his rucking friends hope Freedom Ruck will serve as inspiration to the general public to express their gratitude to the military community and their families. 

“The goal of Freedom Ruck is to simply say thank you. We try to lead by example and inspire folks to stand behind these heroes and their families. Our hope is to rally the public to take action. Our servicemen and women deserve to know how much we appreciate what they do.” said Wise. 

Freedom Ruck monetary donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit The Navy SEAL Foundation. Over the past four years Freedom Ruck has raised over $30,000 for the Foundation.
