Men and women of the armed forces work tirelessly to protect their nation on a daily basis. One sometimes overlooked effect of their increasingly demanding job is those that are lost to suicide. It has been reported that 22 Veterans commit suicide per day. The Active Hero's organization has the goal of spreading awareness of Veteran Suicide and is working with the fitness world to help.
On Saturday, August 20, 2016 12 Labours CrossFit will be hosting an "Active Heroes" WOD to raise awareness about veteran suicide while fundraising to provide programs for military families.
Donations are not required to participate, but are welcome. To donate, click here.
