Join us as we hit the pavement to Stomp Out Soldier Suicide! Most of us have heard the statistic that 22 soldiers commit suicide a day. Studies show that Veterans are at 50% higher risk of suicide than their peers who have not served. We are on a mission to reduce that number to zero and we need your help!
Helping Heroes NEPA presents our inaugural Stomp Out Soldier Suicide 2.2 Miler that will be held at Blakely Borough Recreation Complex on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 9:00 am. The course will be flat and fast and the cause worthy. Awards will be presented to the overall male and female as well as the top 3 finishers in each age group.
