4th H.O.O.A.H. WI has organized its 5th annual 20 Mile Suicide Awareness March this Veterans Day, November, 11, 2017, to raise money for Veteran suicide awareness and prevention. Since the most recent study shows 20 Veterans commit suicide every day, this event is a 20 mile or 2.0 mile march. It will take place in Green Bay and begin at Stadium View Bar and Grille. This event can accommodate up to 2,000 participants. Many of the participants are civilians, active, non-active, and Veteran military personnel, however, all are encouraged to participate or attend to show their support. Though it’s not a requirement, many of the participants will be carrying a rucksack or backpack that weighs 20 lbs. in remembrance of the 20 Veterans that take their lives each and every day.
Further, the money raised will help us help those who are suffering from mental illness and are considering such a tragic fate. Every Veteran deserves our help in overcoming such obstacles after serving our country and fighting for our freedoms. 4th H.O.O.A.H. WI will never turn a fellow service member, a Veteran of the U.S. Military away, but we need help and support to fulfill this promise. Thus, we are asking you to join us this Veterans Day and help us bring awareness to veterans suicide by sponsoring 4th H.O.O.A.H. WI’s 20 Mile Veteran Suicide Rucksack March.
Lastly, this event isn’t about who finishes first or last. This event is about joining together as a team to fight against Veteran suicide. There will be no prizes for finishing 1st, 2nd or 3rd. However, we will recognize those who go above and beyond in their fundraising efforts to better help 4th H.O.O.A.H. WI fight this fight against Veteran suicide. For those who go out and raise over $1,000 in pledges for the march they will be recognized before and after the completion of the march with a special award for their efforts.Register Now Volunteer Sponsorship Pledge Form Boot Campaign Event Details
