Marines encourage a participant during the 5th Annual Sgt. Josh Desforges Fitness Challenge’s culminating event at Ludlow High School, on March 12. Every participant in the event who lasted the full hour, competed in a pullup challenge to determine the overall male and female winners. The challenge is used as a means to raise money for a scholarship award fund in Josh’s name. Last year, 20 Ludlow High School students were awarded $1,000. (Official Marine Corps photo by Staff Sgt.
