RIDING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We are a ride, geared at raising donations and awareness for veteran suicide and mental health.
The name ‘Mission 22’ came out of a campaign we ran several years ago, called #Mission22, to raise awareness about the number of suicides per day that were being recorded in the Veteran community.
although that number has dropped to 16 each day, 22 is synonymous has become a symbol for veteran suicide.
1 is too many…
66 For The 22 was created as a cross country ride, to raise awareness for veteran suicide and is a ride that stretches along what is probably the most famous road in the world. Historic Route 66 spans over 2,400 miles and crosses 8 states, starting in Chicago, Illinois and terminating at the Pacific Coast in Santa Monica, California.
22 riders, all who have lost brothers or sisters, to veteran suicide, ride across country and raise awareness and donations to support veterans mental health and programs that will help veterans cope with PTSD and other issues, resulting from their experiences in combat.
