Did you know that we are losing 22 Veterans a day to suicide?
I didn’t know that either until I lost my own son Dustin, an Afghanistan Veteran, in December 2014.
There were so many things I didn’t know, like the signs of PTSD or where to go for help other than the Veterans Administration. Without knowing, I was helpless to stop him.
I am on a mission to educate other families about what to look for before a tragedy happens, and urging Veterans that may be struggling to reach out for the help they need and deserve.
Through the For Them Virtual Race, The Maine Silhouette Project will raise awareness about the struggles our Veterans face in returning home after their duty and to increase awareness of the risk of suicide.
Won’t you join me in this effort?
It is our pleasure to announce that $20 from each registration of the For Them Virtual Race will be donated directly to The Silhouette Project.
This Virtual Race can be completed wherever you are, and to any distance or discipline that you desire. You will be mailed an awesome event bib and commemorative finishers medal for you and man's best friend! Additionally, if you are interested in purchasing a shirt, please register before April 17.
This event is proud to be a part of the Service & Sacrifice Series Challenge!
The Service & Sacrifice Series Challenge serves as a collaborative effort to raise awareness of events that continue the legacies of our Nation's Gold Star Families, Military Active Duty, Veterans, and First Responder Heroes.
Our mission is simple: Inspired by Heroes and Connecting Communities.
The goal is to connect civilians with those who have served, and introducing events, stories, and legacies they may never have known. The Service and Sacrifice Series motto is: Remember, Honor, and Inspire.
HONORING HEROES FOUNDATION
In 2020, the Service & Sacrifice Series Challenge will be managed by the Honoring Heroes Foundation. The Honoring Heroes Foundation is a 501(c)(3) whose mission aligns with that of the Challenge.
