22 veterans a day commit suicide. That is over 8,000 suicides a year and over 125,000 veteran suicides in the last 15 years. It truly has become an epidemic. Our warriors need our help and our best effort. The good news is that there is an organization helping our veterans and getting truly amazing results. K9s for Warriors rescues dogs from kill shelters and train them to be service dogs for veterans with PTSD. What is happening is truly a miracle and these veterans are getting their lives and families back.
The Harrisonburg Police Department and K9s for Warriors is teaming up to raise money for veterans struggling with PTSD. The big fundraising event is Saturday, July 23rd in Harrisonburg, VA. It will be an adventure race fundraiser along with a Music Concert. Veterans and military personnel are admitted free to the concert (The Hackens Boys), and are also provided with free food and cigars.
Please sign up to participate in the Adventure Race to help raise as much money as possible for veterans with PTSD. All proceeds go to K9s for Warriors.
