Rutkowski also ran in memory of his grandmother and for his mother who is a breast cancer survivor. LT. Rutkowski paid this tribute by running the entire event in full turnout gear and wearing an air pack. (That's approximately 50 pounds of equipment for those not familiar with our gear). Great job LT!
