Invigorating male community leadership across Cape Fear

The body is made to be used. Without work, it withers away. But with regular training, we can become durable physically, psychologically, and emotionally.


We seek strength in numbers, for accountability and encouragement. Life is not worthwhile without being in communion with others. We are not supposed to live alone.


We are part of something much bigger than ourselves. Our personal strength can be a strength for others. Our durability allows our family and community to thrive.

End It Ruck PAX are still after it

Help us free those who are victims of modern-day slavery. Get your friends and family to pledge money toward the miles you ruck, run, walk, bike, or swim. We aim to raise $327,500 by October 2021 to save 50 people.
