Tough Ruck 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.
In 2017, I watched my father, a Lieutenant Commander in the US Public Health Service, complete this course because of his respect and gratitude for the men and women that have served our country. Like so many of us, I am vulnerable to forgetting the sacrifices made so that I can enjoy the privileges that I take for granted everyday: being a female who can attend university, being able to vote, being able to speak out against injustice and so much more. We all say "Thank you for your service", but I want to do more than that. Last year, my brother and I decided to participate in the Tough Ruck in order to honor our service members and to give back to them a small fraction of what they have given to us. This year we hope to continue to support our military members by participating in this event once more! My goal is to raise $450+ by April 1st, 2019 for military families in need; please consider supporting me through donations to help me reach my goal and beyond. Thank you all for your time, consideration, and support for our Fallen Troops and Military Families!
