Proud to announce our participation in the upcoming Movement for Mental Health event on 26 June in observance of National PTSD Awareness Day on 27 June.
The fundraiser, hosted by FitOps Foundation involves a 22 mile run to symbolize the 22 lives lost daily to suicide. The aim is to build a community of mental health advocates who actively raise awareness to veteran and active-duty military PTSD and suicide. All proceeds generated during the event will go towards supporting FitOps foundation programming and mission; to improve the physical and mental health of veterans by creating purpose and community through the power of fitness.
The event is focused on movement in any capacity. Run, bike, walk, HIIT etc. The run can be conducted as a team, individual, or in a relay form. This year we opted for the relay format and will determine leg lengths based upon the number of running volunteers who step forward.
This year we are also fortunate to have the support of Global Networks Inc. who has offered the use of their space for pre and post run events; socializing, food, and drinks. The social portion of the event will be free and open to all of our veterans, law enforcement, first responders, family members, and care givers.
