Let’s go RUCKING to remember Brother Phil, let’s put on our Rucksack and face the 5K Trail, Obstacles & Mud pit course in support of the obstacles and challenges that Brother Phil and his family faced and for the family’s continued challenges in the days ahead.
Our RUCK has three primary goals:
1-To raise money to help the family of Phil Warren alleviate some of the financial burden from Brother Phil’s fight with Leukemia in 2017 – 2018.
2-To raise cancer awareness and show others our support in the fight against cancer.
3-To show the Warren family and others battling cancer that we can all come together to demonstrate support through an event such as Rucking.
