Welcome to the 102nd Security Forces Squadron fundraising page!

Some of us were present at last year's Boston Marathon. What started out as a short, fun and routine route security mission turned into a real world emergency. When our city and its civilians were attacked - we responded and assisted! This year we will be marching in honor of the victims of the bombing as well as SSgt TJ Lobraico who was recently killed in action. SSgt Lobraico was serving with the 105th Security Forces Squadron in Afghanistan.

Please come out and support us as we march 26.2 miles along the historic Minuteman Trail through Lexington/Concord.

Help us support Military Friends Foundation Tough Ruck Project by making a small donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. We truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause which is to the support the families of our fallen military members!

If you can't make a donation at this point, help us reach our goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter!
Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to this page!

Thanks so much for your generosity!

Lannan O'Brien: Sgt. Bent,
We spoke on the phone earlier this year - I'm the Enterprise reporter who covered the march in January. If I attended the march tomorrow (I know, last minute!) is there any way I could meet up with you guys after? I'd love to get a picture and ask about your experiences.

Please feel free to call/text me on my cell phone 774-313-9201.

Thanks,
Lannan
