September is “Suicide Prevention Month” and we are asking you to show your support by walking, hiking, or biking 22 miles (or steps) with a weighted ruck or backpack in support of our veterans. Mission 22 supports the veteran community with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials and community social impact. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues. Mission 22 serves combat veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy and victims of MST. Through these three programs, it enables a push for the betterment of our community and support when veterans need it the most, right now.

 

From September 1 - 30, join us in getting in 22 miles, 22,000 steps or 22 minutes a day. Proceeds from this challenge will be donated to Mission 22. 

 

All participants will receive a wristband with their registration.
