Join us on Saturday, Aug 13th, 2016 for a custom GORUCK Light event in Charlotte benefiting the MAFFS 7 crew. MAFFS stands for The Modular Airborne FireFighting System.  On July 1, 2012, MAFFS #7, which belonged to the North Carolina Air National Guard’s 145th Airlift Wing based at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, crashed while fighting the White Draw Fire in South Dakota’s Black Hills.  Four of the six crew aboard the C-130 Hercules died

This event honors the lives of four airmen lost, and celebrates the lives of the two airmen that survived the crash of MAFFS 7.  All money raised above the the actual costs of the event will be donated to the families of the victims of the MAFFS 7 crash, as well as the money raised from several raffles leading up to the event. Registration to this event is $110 per person suggested, but any extra we raise will go directly to those affected by this tragedy. Registration includes 2 patches (including a custom event patch), a custom triblend MAFFS 7 GORUCK light shirt, and a free beer at Sugar Creek Brewing, for those of age, as we toast these six airmen. Please feel free to fund-raise liberally as we work toward this event, as we’d love to give these families as much as possible.  Find more info at:
