THE STORY:

My team (currently serving military) is running the Tough Mudder Atlanta on April 29th to raise awareness of the many issues, both physically and psychologically, our veterans struggle with on a daily basis.  There are over 9000 veteran suicides every year and over 22 per day.  We want to reduce these numbers through awareness.

In addition to raising awareness, we are striving to raise as much money as possible for an amazing organization, AHERO (America's Heroes Enjoying Recreation Outdoors). They connect veterans with patriotic members of local communities by organizing outdoor events and social activities. Their goal is to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war and military service by providing a supportive environment enabling veterans to continue the healing process, so they can focus on their future and reconcile the traumatic events of their past in a healthy and constructive environment.

More than 95% of every dollar raised by AHERO goes directly to veterans in support of this mission with a small percentage allocated to administrative expenses. The directors and staff of AHERO are all volunteers and do not receive any monetary compensation in any form. AHERO was organized and is operated by OIF and OEF Marine Corps and Army Veterans who understand the challenges today's war Veterans face in reengaging the civilian world.

Let's give back to those who have given so much.  "...to care for him who shall have borne the battle..." A. Lincoln
