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. We will walk a 26.2 mile course with our Rucks and carry the names of our Fallen comrades with us. The Ruck happens the day before Boston Marathon Monday in Concord, Massachusetts on the original trails of the Revolutionary War. Tough Ruck is the only Ruck partnered with the Boston Marathon and finishers are awarded the official Boston Marathon Medals and receive recognition from the Boston Athletic Association.
SFC Willie E Stark of Omaha NE went MIA in December of 1966. As of now his loved ones are still unaware of his fate. I have no connection to him or his family other than back in 1982 I wore his POW/MIA bracelet through my senior year of high school. I have never forgotten his name nor his sacrifice. I will participate in Tough Ruck Boston in his honor and I am fundraising to support all Fallen Heroes. Please join me in paying tribute to SFC Stark and to all Veterans and First Responders that have given their lives for our freedom.
