Walk Hard 2021

Eagle Eye Outfitters is proud to partner with Troy University’s Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity for the Walk Hard 2021 event!

Walk Hard 2021 is complete!!! All 36 brothers who started the hike completed their journey from Troy to Panama City Beach! In total, ATO was able to exceed their fundraising goal and raised $90,000 for Jeep Sullivan’s Wounded Warrior Outdoor Adventures.

What is Walk Hard?

Walk Hard is an annual six-day, 128.3-mile charity hike from Troy, Alabama to Panama City Beach, Florida that takes place each spring. Brothers of the Troy University Alpha Tau Omega (ATO) Fraternity participate in this hike during their spring break.

They will start at the TROY Quad at 8:00 a.m. and arrive at Pier Park at 4:00 p.m. on the 10th. Ultimately, this event raises money and awareness for the Wounded Warriors and Jeep Sullivan’s Wounded Warrior Outdoor Adventures. This year ATO has a fundraising goal of $60,000! They will have 36 walkers and 14 members of support staff during their hike. You can donate to their cause here or read more about them on their official website, here.

Walk Hard began in March 2010 and has been a very successful event ever since, with ATO even receiving Troy University’s most highly-acclaimed philanthropy event award.

Eagle Eye has been an integral tie to comfort for our walkers by providing the highest quality clothing and gear to ensure a safe walk. The brands that Eagle Eye has connected us with have been game-changing since our relationship began a few years ago. Without the quality of the gear we have, our walkers’ discomfort would be severe. Also, by helping us with our annual raffle, ATO Walk Hard has been able to raise exponentially more in sums. One of my favorite days of our Walk Hard year is the raffle day at Eagle Eye.
