2019 Veteran's Suicide Awareness 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Did you know that September is National Suicide PreventionAwareness Month? We want to do our part in helping raise awareness, especially for Veteran's. Did you know that each day approximately 20 current and former military service members take their own lives? Let's spread awareness and show our love for those we've lost and be determined to do our best to help those around us that are suffering. Join with us in our first ever Veteran's Suicide Awareness 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2. On the medal is the quote, "Fighting for the ones that can no longer fight for themselves," and on the back of the medal is engraved the words: PURPOSE + DIRECTION + MOTIVATION = LIFE. We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to 22 Too Many®, which is an incredible organization that cares deeply and passionately about our nations military community. Through various events, we seek to serve as a living memorial, reduce the stigma by increasing public knowledge and awareness of PTS, share helpful resources, and provide support and comfort to the grieving families left behind. *For a limited time order your official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE.
