2022 Brady’s Border2Border Ruck March

The 315-mile/98-hour ruck march will begin at the Minnesota World War II Memorial, at the Minnesota State Capitol Mall in St. Paul, MN and travel northwest – stopping at the VFWs, American Legions and Veteran Memorial Parks along the way into Ulen, MN – where we will conduct a short ceremony at the Bethlehem Memorial Cemetery (Brady’s final resting spot). After the ceremony we will ruck west on county roads until we reach the Veterans Memorial Bridge, separating Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN.

Bringing awareness to the effects of Veteran PTSD has never been more important – due to the events of the past year; isolation due to Covid mandates, the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the conflict in Ukraine, having caused significant stress for our veteran brothers and sisters.

This year’s ruck will be led by three teams of two, who will be rucking 15-mile segments. The teams of two signify the importance of always having a battle buddy present to help when the road gets steep. We will be carrying 20 kilos (44 lbs) inside our rucks; symbolizing the 20 veterans that take their own life every day.

This year’s core cadre of six ruckers have almost 190 years of service to this great country. The individuals have made the protection of freedom their life’s mission by serving in the military (USMC, SecDef) or law enforcement (FBI, Lynn PD, St Lucie SO, SD DCI) – most have done both – with deployments/combat tours to Beirut, Tiger Island – Honduras, Desert Storm (First Gulf War), Operation Restore Hope (Somalia), Operation Iraqi Freedom (Second Gulf War) and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) – all have felt the tragic loss of a fellow Warrior to the effects of PTSD.

As we have in the past, we are hoping to have individuals and teams join us along the route to ruck whatever miles they can to support our mission.

We know that this ruck march will be anything but easy, however, we are determined and motivated to raise awareness and donations for the mental well-being of our country’s Veterans – the true American Super Heroes.
