Mission 22 has three major programs. Funding veterans to receive treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they may be facing through our many partner organizations, large scale public art to honor veterans and creating social impact for the issues veterans are facing today,
There are memorials dedicated to the fallen warriors of nearly every major conflict in our country’s history. They remind us of the sacrifice, they honor those we’ve lost, and they tie civilian to soldier. But there is no national monument for those who have fallen in the war against Veteran suicide.
With your support, we’re going to build one. Let’s raise a monument—and awareness. We’ll be working with community leaders in locations like Washington DC and New York City to create a permanent exhibit to pay tribute to those we have lost here at home.
Our goal is to have 40 teams, each one rowing a total of 25,000 meters. At 40 teams, we would end up rowing 1,000,000 meters total. Each team will be able to raise as much as they choose. If we get more than 40 teams we will all still row 25,000 meters each.
This year, we have removed the minimum fundraising goal. That being said, this is a fundraiser. We encourage each team to raise $50 per person. The team that raises the most money will receive a prize package as well as having their team name put onto a cusom made trophy, created by one of the Veteran being cared for by the Mission 22 group.
Each team may be comprised of as many members, and of any sex as you choose. The team can be all male, all female or mixed. You can have 1 person or 30 if you want! However you want to row the 25,000 meters is up to you! For teams comprised of two males and two females only, you will be entered into a competitive division where the fastest time will win individual trophies as well as a prize package.
The first person to register a "team" reserves a rower. Individual registration fee is the same for ALL participants, $16.00(including the person that registers the team). If you want a t-shirt, it's an additional $11.00 per person(or $27 total). Each individual then rundraises on their own which goes towards the overall team amount raised.
This event will take place at XLR8 Athletix/Crossfit OTD connected to On The Dunes Bar and Grill, located at 2055 Haggerty Hwy, Commerce Charter Twp, MI 48390. We will be heading to the restaurant after the event for food and drinks as well!
Event start time is 10am. Registration opens at 9am.
Snacks and Water will be provided during the event.
