This year I turned 50 and have come so far physically from where I was 10 years ago and wanted to be celebrate it with some form of physical activity. Due to COVID- my other events were cancelled so I decided to do the Tough Ruck event on the weekend of September 11th, 2020.
I want to be able to ruck this event in honor of military, veterans and first responders that have given their lives in defense of our country.
If you look at the attached picture at the ribbons attached to their rucks I will do the same with the name of a military member or first responder that gave their life in service OR for a veteran like my Dad who struggled with the effects of Agent Orange, PTSD or other similar issues as a result of their service.
For those that donate to help me raise my fundraising goal of $1000 I will attach their name to me while I complete the event.
See below for where the money raised will go towards.
Tough Ruck 26.2 is a 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 was 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.
