This will be my 6th year in a row participating in this event, even though this year will be virtual. I was not able to register for the actual event in April, so I am very happy I am still able to participate now. Each year I have had new experiences, Some happy and some sad. I have always said after each event, thatr I'm never doing another one. Yet the next day I'm thinking about the next event the following year. Everyone is out to support each other, regardless of who you are. Each year active military, veterans, first responders and civilians come together to accomplish one thing, to honor those that made the ultimate sacrafice.
I am asking for donations to help raise money for the Military Friends Foundation that supports Gold Star Families. A Gold Star Family is a family that has lost a son or daughter, husband or wife in the line of duty. The Military Friends Foundation supports the families with funeral costs, food, bills, moving expences, house repairs and in variety of other ways. Please see it in your heart to give what you can.
Tough Ruck 26.2 is group of military, first responders and civilians whose sole purpose is to Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs, while raising critical funds to support military families and families of the Fallen in times of need. We will walk a 26.2 mile 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. 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 (FEIN 37-1462599) is the official charity of Tough Ruck.
Thank you for your time. Everyone have a great day and please stay safe.
