Awareness is great; Action is greater.

BENEFITING: All American Alternatives
EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2016
Everyday there are approximately 22 suicides among our Veterans and Active Duty. This means 8,030 Veterans will take their lives this year right here at home. Our goal is to honor the fallen and raise as much awareness as possible on PTSD and Veteran suicide. We believe in the strength of numbers so the more people we can bring together, the more awareness we can raise. On Saturday November 12, 2016 we will be walking 22 miles with 22+ pound rucksacks on our backs to honor the fallen and bring that awareness. This is open to Veterans, Active Duty, and civilian supporter. Our route, with stops, will be posted shortly. All money raised through fundraising will be donated to All American Alternatives, a 501c3 nonprofit based in Raleigh, NC. We at A3 believe increasing awareness IS important, but ACTION is equally, if not more, important when it comes to improving the lives of our veterans. We combat stress by increasing access to alternative wellness strategies. We pair Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) providers (massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care) with veterans in need to offer drug free options for dealing with chronic pain, stress, and insomnia.
