Did you know that each day on average 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide? We have the opportunity to make a difference in veterans' lives August 22nd through the Healing4Heroes organization. Healing4Heroes is a non-profit organization that serves dual purposes: supporting our nation's veterans and giving local shelter animals a second chance at life. This organization pairs veterans and shelter animals together to help give the veterans the mental and physical support they need to live a happy and product life. On August 22nd, I will be leading a virtual 5K run/walk to help raise money for this worthy cause. It costs $92 a month to sponsor a service dog for a veteran and our goal is to sponsor 4 deserving pairs for a year. In order to do this, we need at least 200 runners, walkers and supporters to sign up and join us on August 22nd.
Please help in supporting this cause by signing up and getting going on August 22nd. Thanks to Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group and its employees, the first 200 $22 registrations will go directly towards sponsoring the dog and veteran pairs through Healing4Heroes. Your registration includes the cost of a t-shirt and donation to Healing4Heroes. So, grab your pup and let's all step up!
