MOVEMENT FOR MENTAL HEALTH
On June 26th and June 27th we will come together not only as a nation, but as a community in support of National PTSD Awareness Day and our shared mission to end veteran suicide. We invite you to join us on June 26th and June 27th for Movement for Mental Health, a distance challenge that brings our community together to draw attention to veteran and active-duty military PTSD and suicide.
June 26-27, 2021
Saturday, June 26th marks the day that we hit 22 miles together.
Sunday, June 27th marks PTSD Awareness Day, where we will take a day of rest and remembrance, as well as show our support for PTSD Awareness by posting a turquoise square on our social media platforms.
Complete a distance of 22 miles, symbolizing the 22 veterans that we lose to suicide every day.
We don’t care how you complete the mission, but we’re clocking a few different ways to participate:
Run it, walk it, ruck it, bike it, hike it… hell, you can Bear Crawl it if you want… just hit that 22 mark.
Knock it out solo, put a team together and complete the 22 as a group, or get a team of 22 together and knock out 1 mile each as a team-relay.
Individual: Complete 22 miles individually.
Team: Complete 22 miles as a group.
Team-Relay: Everyone on your team completes 1 mile, until 22 miles have been achieved by your group.
