BENEFITING: PATHWAY HOME INC
For those of you who do not know I am a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity at UC Davis and through the fraternity experience I have been exposed to a lot of amazing experiences. One of my fraternity's main focuses is on a philanthropic scale. The main cause that we work to support is called The Pathway Home, a center that focuses on providing resources and support for soldiers suffering from PTSD and other post-battle ailments. We have made it our mission to raise awareness of the startling statistics (like how in the next 24 hours, an average of 18 veterans will commit suicide), and begin the journey of cutting them down. In an effort to show solidarity for the physical duress that soldiers endure as well as symbolize the long, difficult journey of returning home, fournteen of my fraternity brothers and I are embarking on what will be Sigma Nu’s Third Annual TREKKING FOR THE TROOPS. Starting September 14th, we will set out to hike over 100 miles in eleven days, culminating our journey by summiting Mount Whitney in honor of our forgotten veterans. Each of us hiking as pledged to raise $750 for the Pathway Home, and has also made it our personal goals to spread awareness of the struggles that our veterans face daily that often go unnoticed.
