HEALING COMBAT PTSD
TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL AND LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCES FOR COMBAT VETERANS OF THE IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN WARS (OIF AND OEF) WHO ARE BATTLING THROUGH THE SYMPTOMS OF POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER PTSD AND WHO ARE MOTIVATED TO LEARN TO LIVE ON.
We are the Official “Warriors Live On” Marathon Team, which is comprised of Veterans and friends/families of Veterans who come from all over the United States.
Warriors Live On (WLO) is a nonprofit organization in San Diego, CA, that provides educational and life-changing experiences for combat Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars (OIF and OEF) who are battling through the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and who are motivated to learn to “Live On.” We are looking to make longstanding and positive changes in the lives of the many Veterans who have little hope.
Warriors Live On strives to help combat Veterans integrate into their civilian lives as productive and positive members of their communities. WLO’s programs focus on holistic health and helping Veterans feel whole again. The integration of mind, body, spirit and heart healing is necessary for a full lifestyle transformation to occur. WLO provides Veterans with educational and healing experiences that are designed to teach essential skills for healthy, sustainable, and fruitful living in a supportive and healing environment.
The WLO Marathon Team has the goal to increase awareness of the perils of combat PTSD on Veterans and their families. We also aim to raise money to fund the programs we provide for our Veterans. Every single cent the WLO Marathon Team earns will go directly to the Veterans in our programs. WLO's leadership does not receive any money, but works diligently to raise it all for Veterans in need.
On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide every day. It's time to stand up and fight for those who've fought for us. Stand up with us and run or donate!
