Rucking for Refugees

"The Crew" gets ready to Ruck for Refugees at their fundraiser on Nov. 22.

Our Destination Imagination group (The Crew from Bay Middle School) wants to help refugees who live in Lakewood, Ohio, by having a Rucking for Refugees fundraiser. The refugees are from Burma, Afghanistan and Iraq, and have many needs. The money raised from Rucking for Refugees will go to the refugees to buy food for them for the holidays.

The rucking fundraiser will take place on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 1 p.m. We will meet in the Bay High School parking lot. We are asking each participant to pay $5. Rucking is wearing a backpack with heavy objects when you do activities, like carrying a log, walking or hiking. Rucking is fun and challenging!

Participants need to dress for the occasion, bring a water bottle, and have a chaperone with him/her. Participants also need to wear a backpack with 5-10 pounds in it – one or two (wrapped) bricks work. That makes the rucking experience! 

Look for signs around town and check our Facebook page, Rucking for Refugees, for updates and details.
