    NYC Veterans Alliance at the VEThack Ruck March!

    Join us at VEThack's annual Ruck March to End Veteran Suicide with NYPD, FDNY, and Community Partners. This is a wonderful gathering each year led by VEThack and with many organizations taking part, and we'll be proud to participate again this year!
    We'll gather at the USS Maine Monument at 59th Street at the southwest corner of Central Park. A PT session led by Rudy Reyes will be followed by a ruck march along Central Park West to focus attention on preventing suicide. The march ends at the NYPD 20th precinct for a BBQ. After the BBQ, Jake's Dilemma and the Gin Mill will host us for a bar crawl!
    Rucks are up to you and your comfort level. Wear comfortable shoes or boots, and wear apparel representing the Alliance, your military affiliation, or another organization that's meaningful to you.
    Free. Everyone is welcome.
