Ruck Headquarters is seeking to raise funding for Disabled Military Veterans Charities AND NEEDS YOUR HELP AND DONATIONS!!!
The continuing mission for Ruck Headquarters is to serve Veterans. Ruck HQ does this through a network of projects, assets, and partnerships that provide services to raise funds which support Veterans directly, Veterans Organizations, and Veterans Charities.
To accomplish these goals, Ruck HQ uses media platforms such as social media, news services, advertisements, campaigns, and subscriptions in order to grow, promote awareness, and prompt participation. Ruck HQ also develops partnerships and agreements with other organizations in order grow and maintain a network of collaborative efforts that are essential to the missions success.
Currently, Ruck HQ owns and operates a number of special projects aimed solely at generating continuous, year around funding for Veterans Charities. These projects include:
An annual charity event whereby Ruck HQ staff and affiliates participate in the VierDaagse Nijmegen 4-Days March for the express purpose of raising funds for Veterans Charities and to promote Veterans Disabilities and PTSD Awareness via social media platforms.
Words for Warriors
A News, Media, Writing, and Leadership Development Educational platform that seeks to collect stories, media, and other writings from Veterans worldwide, for the express purpose of turning them into book volumes for sale to generate continuous year around funding for Veterans Charities. The project is also a research based platform for the development and writing of Veterans News, and studies in Leadership, Military Leadership, Organizational Leadership, and Leadership Development.
A partnership and collaboration project that plans, organizes, promotes, and hosts large scale (40km or longer in a single day) Ruck Marching Events anywhere in the world. The events are both a race, and for fun, require paid entry for all participants, and are used to generate funding for Veterans Charities, and promote awareness of Veterans Disabilities and PTSD. Events are a collaborative effort usually sponsored and held close to Military Installations, but can be anywhere. Sponsorship is a requirement to provide funding for event promotion at a minimum of 30 days prior, and through event completion. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes are awarded for those who enter as competitors. All other entries are marching for fun and to support Veterans Charities.

Current OFFICIAL list of Veteran Organizations and Veteran Charities – and Partnerships – that RuckHQ contributes to:
The Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home
The VFW National Home serves as a living memorial to America’s veterans by helping our nation’s veteran and military families during difficult times.
The VFW National Home was founded in 1925 as a place where the families left behind by war — mothers and children, brothers and sisters — could remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when their serviceman didn’t come home.
Today’s families face different challenges — reintegration, post-traumatic stress, high unemployment and rehabilitation from battlefield injuries, among others — and the National Home has evolved over our decades-long history to meet those changing needs.
Whether we help a family find strength and support close to home through our Helpline, or they become part of our campus community, military and veteran families can count on the VFW National Home to help them build better lives together.
Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. Beginning in the year 2000 and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided close to $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. These efforts are funded entirely with donations from the public, and hundreds of thousands of individuals have contributed to the Fund.
The Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $200 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
The Fisher House Foundation also operates the Hero Miles program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members as well as the Hotels for Heroes program using donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers without charge. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans.
Founded in 1957, the Soldier’s Fund provides immediate assistance to veterans and service members in the case of emergencies. Disasters, accidents, illness or other misfortunes are the areas of concentration for the Agency.
