Ruckers continue Kewaunee County tour

The road to Milwaukee’s Veterans Park runs through Kewaunee County for four local ROTC students. Samuel Skiff and Andrew Lopez of St. Norbert College in De Pere and Nickolas Hanke and Alex Kaufman of UW-Green Bay arrived at the Luxemburg Fire Station Sunday afternoon after leaving from the Resch Expo in Green Bay earlier in the day. It is part of a week-long march along eastern Wisconsin to bring awareness to 4th HOOAH Wisconsin, which provides assistance to veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and other mental health issues. With 45 pounds on their back, the goal is to raise $20,000 as they march approximately 20 miles a day. This is Skiff’s second For Them-140 mile Ruck March. Even though they struggled with blisters and tired legs during the last five miles of their first segment, Skiff says the pain the veterans they are raising the funds for have it a lot worse.

The crew will settle in Kewaunee Monday night before doing 27 miles on Tuesday. You can follow their journey and find out how you can donate to their cause by visiting their Facebook page online.
