Hello, my name is Quinton Abrecht! I am currently a sophmore at Tufts University and contracted with the United States Army's ROTC Program. I am excited to say that I will be participating in the Boston Tough Ruck for the second year in a row!
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. All money raised will go toward military families that are in times of need. We will complete 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 Ruckers 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.
