HERO HUMP is 6-Mile Ruck March, carrying over 11,000 flags representing Louisiana’s fallen heroes from the Revolutionary War to present day.

We invite current and former members of the United States Armed Forces to register and join us in honoring and celebrating our Fallen. Family and Friends are invited to join other supporters near the finish line, also we encourage participants, their families, and friends to take part in the creation of the Garden of Flags.
