Join us again on Saturday, October 19th, 2024, as we ask everyone to get ready to lace up their walking gear and help us bring awareness to the growing epidemic of Veteran Suicide (averaging 22+ a day). To do this we will be walking the infamous 1.2-mile Myrtle Beach Boardwalk with our VetLife4Life gear, American Flags, and full-on support for our Enlistee, Veteran, and those no longer here with us who held that honor as well. 

(Bring a photo of a loved one who is no longer with us. We'll walk with them in remembrance, and add them to our Wall of Remembrance that is displayed at the VetLife4Life™ office.)

Participating in this event, you'll have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals towards the mission of supporting our Veterans and representing our commitment to sympathize/empathize with the challenges they face daily, all while shedding light on the critical issues of Veteran mental health and suicide prevention.

                                Together, we're raising awareness, breaking stigmas, and promoting vital resources and support for our heroes.
