On 15 April 2013, a group of Syracuse University Army ROTC cadets will ruck march the Boston Marathon again in order to help raise money for a non-profit organization. The team consists of MS I (Freshmen) through MS IV (Senior) cadets. Each cadet must prepare and qualify for the team. The cadets will complete several timed ruck marches with 35lbs or more from January to beginning of April. Distances trained will cover 4, 12, 15 and 20 miles. We hope to break last years time of 6.5 hours.
We are excited to take part in this event again and will be raising awareness and donations for the Green Beret Foundation. The Green Beret Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 foundation that provides financial resources, immediate need supplies, caregiver assistance, and educational scholarships to wounded or ill Army Special Forces warriors and their families. Thank you for your support!
