Welcome to my fundraising page for the Tough Ruck 2014!

I'm not a member of the 1-182 Infantry, but I was embedded with them in Afghanistan in 2011. After spending 2 1/2 weeks with these guys in Afghanistan, we are like family.

Our goal is to start together, finish together, raise awareness and donations, and most importantly remember those who have fallen!

I am dedicating my ruck to:

SGT Edward Grace who I visited in Afghanistan.

SPC Christopher Horton Who was killed in action while I was in Afghanistan and who's Gold Star wife I have come to know and love!

PFC Jonathan Roberge who is from my hometown of Leominster.

Boston Firefighter Michael Kennedy, who was killed on duty on March 26, 2014 responding to a fire on Beacon St. in Boston. He was also a combat veteran with the Marines.

I hope to see you along the Battle Road Trail Saturday April 19th, cheering us on, but if you can't be there please consider making a donation to support our ruck and help us spread the word!

Thank you for your support and for listening to Boston's "Ruck" Station WAAF!
