This Memorial Day Weekend, the BRCC Fund teamed up with The Honor Movement (formerly Ruck to Remember, though that is still the name of the full event) for their annual 60-mile team hike. The Honor Movement hike, which started on Saturday, May 28, is a mission of endurance formerly known as the 60-to-60 — two days of rucking that incorporates a number of stops along the Washington and Old Dominion Trail in Virginia that ends Sunday evening at the Marine Corps Memorial. Then, on Monday the second event for the weekend begins: The Final Miles, a mission of remembrance. The Final Miles kicks off at the Marine Corps Memorial and is designed to be at a slower pace than the events of the previous two days, allowing participants time to talk and think about what Memorial Day means as they carry out this movement. This 7.5-mile walk takes participants through the National War Memorials. Then the Warriors Walk (also known as the Final Movement) begins, incorporating bagpipes as participants walk into Arlington National Cemetery.
