Empowering Individuals to Connect, Heal, and Thrive

The Problem:
These are unprecedented times. The restrictions brought on by the pandemic have forced us to withdraw from active life as we knew it. That's why we are staging the most important event of the year. For 18-months, plagued with isolation and inactivity, it has taken an enormous toll on our well-being. It's been a lost year of development for both mental and physical health. We all desperately need to re-engage with quality physical experiences that help us heal. 
 
Our Solution:
The prescription for a healthier mental outlook is Physical Activity. Movement is essential for a healthier, positive mental perspective. This event will draw attention and help to reduce the stigma of seeking help for our mental health. Coping skills, including physical exercise, community involvement, volunteering, and connectedness to others, are proven to improve mental/physical health and prevent self-harm. Join us as we empower our community to connect, heal and thrive.

The Caldwell-Still Team Honoring Scott Caldwell of the 101st Airborne and all Veterans

Of all the Army values, honor is the one that embodies all the others. Honor is a matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of respect, duty, loyalty, selfless service, integrity and personal courage in everything you do and the 101st Airborne exemplifies this like no other

Dear Friends,

  1. IN THE MILITARY WE HAVE LOST MORE LIVES TO SUICIDE THAN IN COMBAT
  2. This is not acceptable to us. Today instead of mourning we rise up together in all the strength and glory that is due to our courageous service men and women to bring all veterans safely home with the assurance of physical and mental health. 
  3. We must make mental health resources readily available and support them  to Connect, Heal, and Thrive !
  4. Did you know that is someone is asked how they are feeling by someone they believe truly cares it dramatically reduces the likelihood of suicide.
  5. Always remember You are the most valuable resource to your loved ones. 
  6. On this team you will receive a commemorative shirt only for the Caldwell-Still Team. Your own baseball hat. The Stars of Honor Journal ( Hollie Still is holding this below) with directions for caring for veterans and their families.   Automatic entry into high end sports merchandise - especially from the Kansas City Chiefs and drawings for additional gift cards.
  7. A double digit portion of the run proceeds will go directly to  local veterans agencies.

Scott's story is real

The Caldwell-Scott team will be running in honor E-7 Sargent First Class Scott Caldwell. To honor Scott’s service and the service of all veterans and family members. 
Scott served 3 tours, 2 of which were to Iraq. One of Scott’s most difficult missions when two Black Hawk helicopters went down. 17 Soldiers of the 101st airborne died as a result.  The mission conducted by the 101st Airborne division was a rescue and recovery of their own battalion.   It was marked as a part of a four day stretch near Bagdad that was considered one of the deadliest for the military.  Scott and his team were responsible  recovering Soldiers bodies  from the aircraft and removing all debris. It was then reported that, “ Scott performed his duties to protect our commander and assisted in all phases of the recovery.” He never fully recovered from that mission. 
For his service Scott received 20 awards and badges including: Global war on terrorism service medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, The Senior Air Crewman Badge, and the National Defense Service Medal with two stars. 
While in Iraq Scott suffered his own traumatic brain injury.  He also dealt with PTSD in the aftermath of his return. Due to the things that Scott had seen and done he felt he could no longer go on. 
Desperation overcame Scott on Sept. 20, 2011 and he took his own life. He is survived by his two children, Christina, 13, and son, Charles, 26, his two stepbrothers Robbie, and Scottie, and his half sister Karissa Caldwell. Hollie and Scott shared a closeness of brother and sister that is unrivaled.  Scott even sent Hollie, his “sissy”, a flag that was flown over Iraq in a stealth bomber just for her. 
The effects of the loss of Scott have been more than words can express in terms of  loss and grieving for the entire Caldwell and Still families.
Please help us honor the memories and support them and all veterans by signing up for the Caldwell-Still team.
