Stop Soldier Suicide

That’s the name of the program. They get a good rating by the charities watchdogs. So, figuring they include Sailors as well, I am doing the fundraiser for November. 

Now, before you ask, you have to donate on the link I’m including, and that means Facebook. Life isn’t always fair. But so it is.

I am promising to walk 50 miles during November wearing a 41 pound backpack. That’s a jumbo bag of dog food for comparison. My goal is to raise $1500 for the cause. If everyone gets hot and donates the full $1500 before 2359 Eastern on 11-5, I will double the miles and walk 100 miles. With a 41 pound pack. 

Here’s the me that started the walking:

November 1, 2022

Here’s the link to make a donation via Facebook:

You may be wondering why I am doing this ruck march: the answer is too many friends gone. I have a lot of military friends that have killed themselves, or have tried it. If my walking around on the backroads with a heavy pack means that one person gets saved, I am going to do it.

I hope you will click on the link and donate. If nothing else, you might get to see me walk an extra 50 miles this month.
