Thank you for your interest in the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine Tough Ruck fundraising page. We are committed towards assisting military families and honoring Fallen Service Members and First Responders.
Our team is composed of Tufts Dental students, faculty and staff. A portion of our team are also veterans and student's who currently serve in the military through the Health Profession Scholarship Program. Upon graduation, these students will enter Active Duty to provide quality, compassionate dental care for our service members.
As part of the Tough Ruck 26.2 race, we will walk a 26.2 mile certified course with our Rucks, raise funds for military families, 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.
