The “60 to 60 Ruck to Remember” is an event organized by The Honor Movement Foundation. It involves a challenging 60-kilometer hike that lasts over 36 hours, typically taking place over Memorial Weekend. During the event, participants walk and share Stories of Valor, honoring and remembering those who have served in the military.
Volunteers from the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department were present to support the event. They greeted the four teams of walkers as they made their way towards the US Marine Corps War Memorial, providing them with cold drinks and wet towels to help them cool off. After a one-hour rest, the teams continued their journey, led by a bagpiper playing “America the Beautiful.”
