Saving the lives of our Service Members, Veterans, and their families.



    A program of the
         National Alliance To End Veteran Suicide     

Welcome to Race 2 Save Veteran Lives, a program of the National Alliance To End Veteran Suicide (

The 5 Ws follow:

We are in a Race to Save The Lives of our Service Members and Veterans, with the highest spike in Veteran Suicide as the first 12 months from separation from the military.  With the total statistic of Veteran Suicide at 20 / day, that is one life lost every 72 minutes (and the clock is ticking....).
This specific race is designed as a community launch of our platform, to share with our nation that our Veteran Lives Matter and that we can be one big T.E.A.M!  It is also a collaboration opportunity for all organizations working with our Veterans and their families, providing great resources, services and connections.

There is an opportunity here for every American!  We believe that "No one can DO EVERYTHING, BUT EVERYONE can do something".  What is your something?  Consider this as an entrance point for you, your family and your community.
For our Service Members and Veterans that are looking for your next mission, or anyone seeking a mission that is worthy of your life, consider our Volunteer Champions program. 
For race fans, one idea would be for you to create a virtual Race 2 Save Veteran Lives around your favorite sport(s).

As a Virtual Race you get to choose what sport works best for you.  It could be a walk, run, stroll, a bike ride, a swim, a wheelchair race, a motorcycle rally, etc.  Any activity that you could do to honor the Service Members & Veterans in your family, your community or our nation.   
Please let us know what creative ideas you have to express your Race 2 Save Veteran Lives.

Any time between the date you Register and midnight on December 31st.

Anywhere you like, the choice is yours.  Around a track in your city, your favorite hiking trails in wilderness, in your hospital ward, your favorite running location, on the beach as a family, in the pool with your friends, etc.
