Everyday there are approximately 22 suicides among America’s Veterans and Active Duty- that means 8,030 will take their lives this year, right here at home. 22toZero is a 2 Mile and 22 Mile walk; an event that everyone is invited to participate in. Every year a non-profit is chosen to receive the funds raised and they all share the same mission- Supporting Veterans.
The 2017 beneficiary was Sacred Soil for Veterans. The Sacred Soil Project is a mobile, grass-roots, non-profit corporation located in Tallahassee, Florida. Their mission is to reduce the number of Veterans experiencing homelessness in the Tallahassee area by creating authentic relationships with people living on the streets and in homeless camps. They provide support through the distribution of food, other comforts, and encouraging words.
Since it's inception in 2015, 22toZero has raised over $23,000 for America's Veterans!
