The 2017 Anniversary Signal Ball Committee presents the second annual 22 to 0 May No Veteran Stand Alone Workout of the Day.
Daily 22 veterans take their own lives by suicide. This isn’t just a problem amongst our nation, but an epidemic, that needs our attention and action immediately.
This event isn’t just about the workout, but it’s about increasing awareness about suicide prevention and awareness.
In conjunction with the WOD, is a symposium. This symposium includes several organizations throughout the Fort Gordon and Augusta community.
What can we do as a community to help in decreasing the number of this alarming statistic? Organizations including First Command Financial Planning, Team Red White and Blue, Saratoga Warhorse, Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Hospital Suicide Prevention division, the Big Red Barn Retreat, Total Nutrition, Fifth Third Bank, Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services, and Operation Enduring Warrior are all part of this event to let the community know about their mission and what they can do to assist our local veterans here in the CSRA.
22% of funds raised through registrations will go to 22KILL and Operating Enduring Warrior.
