Support Team Tufts Ruck

On April 14th, Tarlan Sedaghat (D22) from LGBTQA will be joining Tufts Tough Ruck team on a 26.2 mile walk in honor of our fallen veterans. The food they’ll be carrying during the walk will be donated to the New England Center and Home for Veterans, and the money they’re hoping to raise with your help will provide much needed support to veteran families.

Together they are also hoping to raise awareness for a new project called Service With a Smile. This project is aimed to allow volunteer dental students provide dental services to veterans in Boston.
