On Saturday, June 18, he will push a weighted steel sled for three kilometres along Davenport Rd. starting at 10 a.m. 

He will start at 11 Division, where he’s the unit commander, and end at the Dovercourt Boys & Girls Club at 180 Westmoreland Ave.

“At every 0.5 kilometres, I will stop and youth from the club will speak on hardships in life and, from those experiences, I will add a weight until the midway point, at which time staff members of the club will talk about what they are doing to help the young people,” said Kuck. “Once the switch is made to the staff members speaking, I will remove some weight.”

Funds raised will support the club’s character development program – Music Makers – for youths between eight and 15.

“The funds will go directly to the purchase of musical instruments such as steel drums, keyboards, guitars and wind instruments,” said Kuck.
