Go-Ruck Challenge in honor of Officer McKeithen

The Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi challenged the community to compete in a ‘Go-Ruck Challenge’ to benefit fallen Biloxi Police Officer Robert McKeithen.

The community responded with hundreds of participants lining Highway 90 to march to the lighthouse for Officer McKeithen. Some walked, some ran, and some carried weighted backpacks for their five mile trip.

Participants donated $20 to compete, all of which was donated to the McKeithen family. “Just to be able to serve a family here in our community and to see an outreach of people responding to the same thing, I think that connects people in a way that our community needs to be connected and that’s important.”

Before the event even started, Margaritaville said they raised over $2,000 for the McKeithen family.
