The date is drawing near for the epic adventure that is the GORUCK Ascent! If you're not familiar with the GORUCK Challenge or the Ascent, let me explain.
Inspired by the most elite training offered to Special Forces soldiers and led by Green Berets, the GORUCK Challenge is a team event and never a race. Challenge cadre build each class into a team through collective conditions of mental and physical exhaustion. Classes are small, camaraderie is high, smiles are plentiful, and teamwork is paramount.
The GORUCK Challenge isn't just some mud run or endurance challenge, it's very much like the mental adversity I overcame to make it as far as I did in BUD/s (Basic Underwater Demolition / SEAL Training). While never becoming a SEAL, I did complete the major hurdles of the program to include Hell Week and Pool Comp. Overcoming the mental game is what GORUCK is all about and why I've invested my time training for the culmination of all those that pass the Challenge, the Ascent.
Limited to just 50 people, I feel lucky to have the opportunity to participate in the Ascent, but that will be based on a few prerequisites. The GORUCK Ascent will be a 100 hour team building event combined with classes taught by some of our nation's special forces operators, the Green Berets. We will be summiting multiple 14,000 foot mountains in a short period of time.
I've been training for both the GORUCK Challenge and the Ascent for a few months now and WILL complete my GORUCK Challenge in Oklahoma July 30th, the first prerequisite to being accepted to participate in the Ascent.
Other than completing a GORUCK Challenge, I've also committed to raise $1,000 for the Green Beret Foundation and that's where I need your help!
Any help you can provide would be extremely appreciated and will be going to a fantastic cause! Even if you can't donate, I would appreciate any way you could share this fundraising goal with those you know.
Thanks for all your support!
