My name is Briana Lumbert and I am a soldier of the 125th QM Co of Massachusetts. I have been in the National Guard for about two years thus far, and in that time, I have learned and grown a tremendous amount from being apart of the U.S. Army. I am rucking in the 2020 Tough Ruck to do my part in helping those families in need and hopefully add to making a difference in their lives. No one is left behind, and that includes soldiers families, so I am blessed I can participate in an event that will bring a little less struggle to those in need of it. Hoorah to my fallen comrades, and thank you for your sacrifice.
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.
