THE STORY:

My name is Josh Geartz and I am a disabled US Army veteran who has done something I never imagined doing. I attempted suicide. Fortunately, just in time, I found something that gave me reason to live. But each day, an average of 22 veterans don’t find that reason and tragically take their own lives. In their honor, I am again doing something I never imagined doing -- I will be riding my wheelchair 422 miles from Indiana to NY. I'm calling it 422 For22. I want to bring awareness to the fact that since 1999 over 120,000 veterans have committed suicide. This needs to stop. They need help finding a reason to live, like I did. My funds raised will support Songwritingwith:Soldiers the organization that helped me. Help me help them. Your support will help other veterans share their story through a song, build connections, and find community. Thank you. And if you happen to see me out on my ride, stop and say hello. It would mean the world to me
