ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Blue Ridge School will host an event to support an organization that helps area veterans and their families.

A ruck is a long, weighted hike that aims to challenge participants mentally and physically, and it’s the military’s way of getting through the woods.

The first-ever Ruck the Ridge will take place Nov. 5 at the school, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

And it all goes to support Living Free Together.

There will be solo and team challenges as well as booths, an obstacle course, food trucks and more.
