SARASOTA - The Brian Bill Foundation along with members from Real Fitness Sarasota are participating in a 31 mile ruck to honor fallen members of the military this Saturday. The challenging walk begins on the Lincoln Memorial Lawn in Washington D.C. and ends at Arlington National Cemetery.

Real Fitness Sarasota owner Tanya Poppa says working closely with the Brian Bill Foundation inspired her to participate in the ruck for the first time this year.

“We carry two bricks in our ruck sack, one of them represents the fallen heroes and one is to represent their families and the burden that they’re carrying. Then we also as a group will take turns and carry a stretcher that will also have bricks on it representing the fallen heroes as well," says Poppa.

Poppa’s gym will also honor the fallen heroes of Extortion 17 this Tuesday .
