BENEFITING: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
EVENT: Tough Mudder Las Vegas 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 29, 2016
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and over 42,000 americans die from suicide each year. We have all struggled, many of us have been pinned into corners thinking there is no way out. Every one of us deserves a support system, and through all the crap we go through in life, we deserve to have someone by our side and pick us up through our hardest moments. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a community that is dedicated to find better ways to prevent suicide, creating a better culture on mental health and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.
22 Veterans per day commit suicide!.......and having served 11 years in the United States Navy, I know there are many people who push hard to raise awareness on this. I know many of us have been with people who are directly affected by this, and we all need to take part in making sure all of these statistics drop. This is unacceptable, and we do the 22 for 22 challenge and post around facebook raising awareness, which is great, but lets make some bigger noise. Help me donate to the AFSP. My goal is to reach $2,000, and every cent goes to the cause. Lets blow that number out of the water and really stake our claim to helping with this. I will also call on anyone who is tough enough to join my team in this race, putting our money where our mouth is and run for this cause!
