operation shell shock

JUNE 8, 2024


Join #DoYouGiveARuck? this June 8  for Operation Shell Shock as we ruck march for Veteran Suicide Awareness & Veteran PTSD Awareness from Sebastian Inlet park to Downtown Melbourne! Join Doyougivearuck as we march across the  Space Coast  for over 20 miles as we raise awareness for our local veteran's! This 20 mile ruck march will include free water, free food, a combat patch, transportation, and more for everyone who joins our mission! This FREE event is to help our local veterans connect with our community in a show of support for our local veteran's who may struggle with PTSD and to raise awareness that veterans are taking their lives at an average number of 20 veterans a day. 

(Between 17-22 every 24 hours) We are asking for our communities help! Please submit names, ranks, and branch of service of people who we lost to this battle and the ones who are still fighting. We will take the list of names and write them on ribbons that will be distributed amongst our ruckers so that they may ruck with us in spirit or to let veterans who are still struggling know their brother's and sister's have their backs! This event is open to civilians, veterans, first responders, law enforcement, and everyone in between.

You can do relay teams, solo, or with family and friends! All we ask in return is that you please sign up early so we get a proper head count for supplies and buses back to the start point! To sign up early please click on the link below, we are open to donors and sponsors for this mission to help feed, hydrate, and transport participants back to the original start point.
