SAE Brothers Ruck to Raise Money for WWP
The Mansfield University Pennsylvania Beta Phi chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon held a philanthropic event to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Volunteer brothers carried weighted backpacks as they marched the streets of Mansfield in order to show support for Wounded American Military Personnel.
Brothers rucked 10 miles with backpacks weighing in at 150lbs to symbolize the weight of standard carrying of Military Personnel during combat missions.
The chapter raised $225 that will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project which is an organization that provides support for wounded military personnel and their families recover from injuries during military duty.
This event was a Pilot for a future of making this service an annual event to support the Wounded Warrior Project.
This event was set up by Joe Utegg, Philanthropic Chairman to the Penn Beta Phi Chapter.
