BENEFITING: K9S FOR WARRIORS
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2014
We are a small group of veterans, walking 25 miles to raise awareness of PTSD and Soldier/ Veteran Suicide while raising funds to support "K9s For Warriors", a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from shelters and trains them as service K9s for veterans with PTSD/ TBI.
For the last 12 years, there have been an average of 18-22 Soldier/ Veteran Suicides per day. In 2012, the rate of soldier sucides was 1 every 25 hours. Myself and Sean have a great passion to see these suicides come to an end. Both of us have lost very good friends to suicide. ONE is too many. Lets help get these warriors and veterans the help they need, to lead a normal life.
