Tough Ruck is a 26.2 mile Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs. This year I will be marching in honor of my grandpa. He served in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper.
This year, I am working to raise $950 to participate in the event. 100% of the funds go to the Military Friends Foundation.
The foundation is a New England based charity that provides support to families and deployers. They offer grant programs, community building events, case management and program assistance in support of families who have served.
The Ruck will take place the Saturday before Boston Marathon Monday in Concord, Massachusetts. It is the only Ruck partnered with the Boston Marathon and will run on the original trails of the Revolutionary War.
I am honored to be participating in the 2019 Tough Ruck. Thank you for your time and your support!
