Operation: Ruck 22 is a special event meant to raise awareness to the suicide epidemic currently plaguing veterans and members of the military community. The 22 kilometer march alongside Chicago's lakefront path signifies the 20 deaths by suicide among veterans. Marchers are encouraged to carry a 40 pound Rucksack on this challenging 22 kilometer journey to represent the hardships and inner battles fought by service members that we have lost too soon. At the end of the march a culminating celebration at South Shore Cultural Center will take place offering free services, food, and recreation for all those walking on behalf of our fallen heroes.


Participants must have a customer account before registering. Contact Maribel Mejia 312-745-2062 or maribel.mejia@chicagoparkdistrict.com with questions.
