Come join RUN YOUR RACE for a family friendly 5k Run/Walk and help support 22 Too Many! You will experience a small town feel at our professionally run events, with just enough competition to make it fun and exciting!

Why? Approximately 22 veterans a day take their own lives, a report released in 2012 by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) shows. There are a number of reasons for this startling statistic, among them: post-traumatic stress (PTS), the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI), and the negative stigma in the military community around seeking help

Veterans are not the only suffering. The families are left suffering from complicated grief long after the loss of a loved one. Learn how you can connect and help more.

How: Print out and carry the pictures our fallen heroes to honor their memory and raise awareness of military PTS. To find, download and print a picture of a hero to honor, please click on one of the gallery links below:
