The University of Iowa Veterans Association and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Student Veteran Organization are teaming up to raise awareness for US Military Veteran Suicide. While these two schools rival when it comes to football they have come together for a bigger cause.
The military veteran students will coordinate a ruck march of the game ball from 344 miles from Kinnick Stadium to Memorial Stadium in Lincoln Nebraska for the November 24th Cornhusker vs. Hawkeye football game.
Our Ruckers will be carrying 22 lbs to honor the 22 Veterans who take their own lives every day. The 22 lbs will be comprised from personal belongings of the volunteer ruck marchers. These belongings will hold personal significance to their military experiences, or honor the service of friends or family.
