The Kentucky Wounded Heroes was one of the recipients of funds raised by the Resilience Ruck, a charitable organization founded by Casey & Erica Hildreth in 2022.  The Resilience Ruck sponsored event is a 12K ruck which represents the 12 steps of recovery.  Erica, the United States of America’s 2023 Mrs. Kentucky, states the ruck is dedicated to bringing awareness to the struggles our veterans face every day.
