On April 19, 2020, I will be participating in Tough Ruck 2020 in memory of fallen military, police, fire and EMTs. I did this the last two years it has been an incredibly tough but rewarding experience. Each participant is required to raise $450 towards the Military Friends Foundation. If you feel you can contribute, please follow this link: charity.gofundme.com/2020-tough-ruck1 and contribute in my name. If you feel up to the challenge and can participate in a "ruck marathon", sign up and I'll see you in April!
Tough Ruck 26.2 is group of military and civilians whose sole purpose is to Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs, while raising funds to support military families in times of need. We will walk a 26.2 mile certified course with our Rucks and carry the names of our Fallen comrades with us.
On April 15, 2013, the Tough Rucker were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and joined the first responders to help those that were injured by the horrific blasts. They truly exemplify the best of what our Nation is. Today the Ruck happens the Sunday before Boston Marathon Monday in Concord, Massachusetts on the original trails of the Revolutionary War. Tough Ruck is the only Ruck march partnered with the Boston Marathon and finishers are awarded the official Boston Marathon Medals and receive recognition from the Boston Athletic Association. Military Friends Foundation is the official charity of Tough Ruck.
