9/11 Ruck to Remember


9/11 changed, not only, our lives individually as Americans but also how we operated as a nation, as a community. It may be hard to imagine in these current days of division and strife, but following the attacks on 9/11 our country was united.

Please join us on this ruck and expect to have conversations to revolve around the ideas of SERVICE, COURAGE, and HOPE. We will discuss how this event changed our lives, those that we have lost, and discuss how we can bring our country back to a place of unity.

What to expect:

– We will meet at the YETI Bar location on South Congress and brief the plan of action & thought goals

– We will move as a group to the Texas Capitol building where we will group up and discuss the topics of Service, Courage, & Hope as they pertain to 9/11 and your life.

– We will wrap our conversations and move back to the YETI store front to debrief and quickly share our experiences.

What is RUCKING?

Please watch the video associated with the event that features +MPU Ambassador and former Green Beret, Jason McCarthy as he discusses what rucking is, what it means, and his story about 9/11. For this event you can carry weight or not, either is fine, and if you need weight, we will supply it.

No, you do not need to be a top tier athlete to participate in this event. If you can walk, you can participate. If you cannot walk… We will carry you…


We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 9/10!

– Trip O’Connell, +MPU Brickyard Leader

About the Austin Chapter

Across cities and towns just like yours nationwide, we serve our communities by starting with bringing different neighbors together for events centered around Service, Leadership, and Civics.

By rolling up our sleeves side-by-side, we can begin to see that we have more in common than what divides us; that first and foremost we are fellow Americans with a common love for our families and communities.

These Chapters – also known as our Brickyards – are mobile places for neighbors to connect and solve local problems. We do this through respectful and open conversations, and to find higher ground as we work together brick-by-brick.
