Rock Soldiers Team complete 1000 miles while deployed to Afghanistan, on the way to 7500 miles!
The Rock Soldiers are currently deployed to southern Afghanistan. This team of soldiers have been running, walking and biking in their base gym from Afghanistan. Their goal is to reach 7500 miles collectively by completing 50 miles a day. For the last month they have been tracking their miles and reached 1000 miles faster than the goal they set.
“Active Heroes is thrilled to have this team completing so many miles from across the pond.” said Troy Yocum, founder of Active Heroes. ” Their determination really shines through. They have been spending their down time from missions to do a great thing to help military families!”
This incredible goal of 7500 miles has been an event for Active Heroes. The donations are for a handful of Soldiers and their families who were injured or have died while in combat. From the current location to the Team’s home is 7500 miles away, which is why the mileage was chosen. Rock Soldiers are fully dedicated and committed to accomplishing this task and they encourage everyone to spread the word about this fundraiser.
“We would like for everyone to motivate us through this task. We ask everyone to donate to help these soldiers in a time of need. This will help them through their financial hardships!” said Andrew Bork, a Rock Soldiers Team member. “Please continue to support us by spreading the word to help our veterans in need.”
