We'd like to raise as much as we can for these organizations and we're hoping you do too, so we are using a Pay What You Can approach, hoping you will choose to give more than we could imagine. We set a minimum price of $5 per adult and $1 per child (age 6-12) and includes a t-shirt and admission to the festival for the day. Parking is not included.
Check-in starts at 9:30 am and will be followed by an opening ceremony to kick off the walk.
The Veterans Administration (VA) estimates that 22 veterans die by suicide every day and as many as 950 suicide attempts occur each month among veterans receiving services through the VA. Studies are showing that over 40% of US soldiers returning home from Iraq or Afghanistan suffer from a mental disorder or behavioral problem.
This event will help raise awareness and promote the prevention of this epidemic by bringing the community together to memorialize those lost and let Veterans, their friends, and families know they are not alone,
Have a great day and see you at the event!!!
