Snowdrop Ruck 

Snowdrop WI.jpg

What: Six years ago, Josh Hass (aka Cadre Roony) searched for a way to go above and beyond for his community. He found Brian Gruender, President of Snowdrop Foundation WI. Josh did not have any connection to pediatric cancer but knew this was where he would help. True to Josh’s character, he wanted to help Snowdrop by putting his own spin on it, in the form of a ruck event.


While most ruck events are all about embracing the suck, the Snowdrop ruck is a little different. The Snowdrop ruck events are self-described as the most fun ruck ever, with participants dressing up in costumes, playing kickball, knockerball, and just getting some good livin’.  Participants travel from as far away as Japan and all over the United States to partake in the weekend’s festivities.

All proceeds will be donated to Snowdrop Foundation Wisconsin.
