Ruck4HIT Cape Cod
Ruck4HIT in collaboration with supporters, local veterans, first responders and those currently serving to raise awareness and funding for Heroes In Transition, Inc. and their various veteran and military family programs.
As every service member is forced to carry the burden of war during active service and beyond, carrying the ruck sack is symbolic of hardships endured and the perseverance required to complete the mission. This event raises funds for Heroes In Transition, all in the continuing effort to never leave a fallen comrade behind.
Each year on the first weekend in May, A field of 12-15 teams of 9 (7 runners and 2 drivers) run 220+ miles through all 15 towns on the Cape. The route begins in Bourne, MA and continues to the tip of the Cape in Provincetown. From here, athletes will head back towards the finish line after running through every town on the Cape and finish the relay in Mashpee, MA. Each athlete will run 2-4 miles at a time with a 20-30 pound ruck sack on his/her back as the teams complete the route in relay format, running non-stop until the mission is complete.

New Balance Falmouth Road Race
HIT has been involved in the NBFRR Numbers for Non-Profits Program since 2013. Each year on the last Sunday in August, a team of runners who we call “TEAM HIT” takes to the streets of Falmouth to run the grueling 7-mile course. Each runner pledges to raise awareness and funds for HIT and all of our programs. To become a “TEAM HIT” member, email: email@example.com
Fall & Spring Galas
Perhaps two of our most heartfelt evenings, the Fall and Spring galas allow us to showcase our programs while thanking our donors, and raising funds for the future of HIT. Each year, Fall Gala takes place on Cape Cod and the Spring Gala in New York.
