On April 19th of 2020 I will be representing my unit, the 103 Security Forces Squadron, at the Annual Tough Ruck held in Boston MA. Here are the highlights:
- It is held the day before the Boston Marathon and runs the same distance of 26.2 miles
- I will be competing in the Military Heavyweight Ruck Category which requires a minimum ruck weight of 35lbs.
- I will be rucking with the names of all the GWOT era fallen Defenders attached to my bag. I will also be adding the names of MSgt John Chapman from Windsor Locks as well as our very own A1C Keith Mylott.
In order to participate I am required to collect donations that will be given to the Military Friends Foundation, which is a nonprofit that give direct support to local service members and families of the fallen in times of need. I ask that all of you look deep in your hearts, and wallets, and donate if at all possible with the link attached to this post. I would also appreciate if you could share this post with friends and family to help reach my goal and to show support to our fallen brothers and sisters in arms. If you have any questions let me know and I will be happy to answer at my earliest convenience.
