End of Watch Memorial Ruck Honors Fallen Officers

MILTON, Fla.- On Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 4:00pm the End of Watch Memorial Ruck will conclude its 150 mile ruck in honor of the officers who lost their lives in 2018 at the Santa Rosa County Fairgrounds Arena. The finish line event and memorial ceremony is open to the public.
The event will feature a memorial parade, a recitation of the names of the officers lost in 2018, and presentations from a number of individuals from our local law enforcement leadership.

“The finish line ceremony marks the culmination of this multi-day event,” said Joshua Schwitzerlett, vice-president of the End of Watch Foundation. “We hope our community will come out and join us again this year as we honor the fallen men and women of our law enforcement community.”

The event, called the End of Watch Memorial Ruck (EOWMR), is in its second year and is organized by the End of Watch Foundation (EOWF) and the First Judicial Circuit Law Enforcement Association (FJCLEA). During the event, dedicated athletes come together to carry one pound for one mile for every line of duty death from the previous year. 

The event raises funds for the FJCLEA, an organization whose primary goal is to provide financial support to members of the criminal justice community and their families during times of need and provides charitable support to children’s advocacy organizations in Northwest Florida. All funds raised by the ruck go to support the efforts of the FJCLEA.
