Ruck To Remember
7:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
Back Cove Trail Parking, Portland, ME, USA, Portland, ME 04101
On Sunday, May 30th, 2021, The Summit Project will be partnering with Ruck to Remember to coordinate a 16-mile trek between Back Cove Park in Portland, ME and the beautiful Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in South Portland, ME. This partnership represents a collaboration of two well-recognized organizations from across the country coming together in honor of our fallen service members from right here in our home state of Maine. With multiple sections being escorted by both the Portland and South Portland Police Departments, this movement will utilize the Eastern Promenade trail system, Commercial Street, Casco Bay Bridge, and the Greenbelt Walkway to honor our hometown heroes on this very special weekend. Tribute Stones from The Summit Project will accompany many of us during this trek, and Fort Preble will serve as the backdrop to our Stories of Valor circle testimony. As we return, we will stop at Fort Allen Park to celebrate the lives and legacies of our fallen Maine heroes with a Warrior’s Meal and the company of a very special guest speaker. Tribute Stone Signout is at 7 AM with step off at 8 AM. The anticipated finish time is 5 PM.
