Over 150 individuals converge to Omaha area lake site to qualify for August’s 50 Mile March.

On Saturday, April 13, the 50 Mile March Foundation welcomed over 150 individuals to Chalco Hills Recreation Area to ruck march 15 miles to qualify for their signature event to be held in August 2024.

The 50 Mile March is a 50 mile ruck march from the steps of the Nebraska State Capitol to Omaha, Nebraska to raise awareness and funds to support our community’s Veterans. Founded in 2020, the March began as six individuals walking and fundraising. Today, over 150 walkers, nearly 100 volunteers and even more supporters helped execute this exciting community event. Participants trained, fundraised, and built a community in preparation of 22 hours and over 120,000 steps each August. This year’s march, Operation Noble Watchman, will be held August 24-25.

The 50 Mile March Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower Veterans facing mental health challenges and homelessness by fostering a community of hope and relentless support. Since our inception, the 50 Mile March Foundation has raised nearly $1 million dollars for our mission and provided hundreds of thousands in grants to local nonprofit organizations that directly help our Veterans. Honoring our history, each year the March donates 10% of walker proceeds to our grant-making program. The remaining funds are invested in our future – construction of the Community of Hope – a tiny home village and community campus to support Veterans facing homelessness and mental health challenges.
