Dear participants and followers of the Capital Ruck Tour,
This nationwide, year-long endeavor to benefit our nation’s wounded veterans through Operation Enduring Warrior has been heavily influenced and supported by my F3 brothers. Tragically, we lost one of our own, Eric Swendsen “Big Wheel”, when he suffered a heart attack while training for the Austin stop of the CRT. He leaves behind his wife, Jessica, of 7 years and two boys – 4 and 1 years old. In an effort to support Eric’s surviving family during this difficult time, we will dedicate the Austin tour stop to him. Eric’s father Bill Swendsen “Cruiser”, along with other F3Houston brothers, will CONTINUE MISSION, and still plan on attending the Austin tour stop on Oct 28, 2017. I encourage you to participate, and by doing so honor Big Wheel at this tour stop.
Additionally, please help financially by contributing to the following:
1. F3Houston is raffling off a GoRuck GR-1 ($295 value), a custom 30# Ruck Plate – as well as some F3Texas Patches. Details are here: https://twitter.com/F3Inferno/status/920262374522806272
2. There is also a GoFundMe page setup in Eric’s name: https://www.gofundme.com/eric-swendsens-hospital-expenses
