Barbells For Bullies and GORUCK Partner For National Program to Raise
Awareness and Funds for Spay/Neuter Initiatives

For Immediate Release 

For Press Inquiries or Interviews:

Jacksonville Beach – (October 4, 2019) Barbells For Bullies and Veteran-owned GORUCK team up to raise money and awareness for spay/neuter programs all around the country with a month long event in November dubbed Ruck Your Balls Off.

Ruck Your Balls Off TM is a fitness event designed to engage and inform the public about the necessity of spay/neuter programs, as well as furthering Barbells For Bullies’ mission of “fostering a fit and socially conscientious community.”
“We can’t stress enough the importance of responsible pet ownership, and with that comes spay/neuter practices. When 1.2 million dogs a year are being euthanized in shelters, the vast majority of them being pit-bull type dogs, we need to do something and fast. The way to stop that bleed, so to speak, is with spay/neuter initiatives,” Alexander Castiglione, Founder and Executive Director of Barbells For Bullies commented. “Just one unaltered female and her offspring can generate enough dogs to fill every seat in Soldier Field in six years,” Castiglione added for context.

This event is open to anyone and costs nothing to enter. Supporters can go to the Barbells For Bullies website and create a fundraising page, and share with their networks. All funds will be dispersed to various programs around the country that provide low/no cost spay and neuter services, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Moreover, Barbells For Bullies has created a club in the STRAVA App—search “Ruck Your Balls Off” and is encouraging people to join to track their progress, link up, or even work with local shelters to take pups on hikes with them if they don’t have a dog of their own. People can pledge per mile or a flat rate, and like all Barbells For Bullies events—ALL net proceeds will go directly to organizations doing great work for all dogs in need. The man and woman that log the most miles will receive prizes for their efforts. And, like all GORUCK events, participants that sign up before October 15, 2019 will get an exclusive Ruck Your Balls Off morale patch!
