Gary, Katie, and I have been involved with the Tough Ruck for several years.. Katie and I have volunteered at this event, while cheering on and supporting my husband Gary and his fellow Ruckers. This year I will be shouldering a ruck and marching alongside Gary! The Tough Ruck family and Military Friends Foundation have persoanlly assisted us when Jake was injured in Afghanistan as well as helped many other Veterans and their families that Gary has worked with. Please support this great charitable event that supports those that protect our communities and defend our country!
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.
