About the event
92 for 22 originated in Michigan April 2017 when a group of veterans decided to walk 92 miles from Comstock Park to Cadillac, Michigan to raise awareness of veteran suicide and the effects of PTSD. A total of 11 veterans participated in the walk and raised $6,644. This money was donated to Help For Our Disabled Troops (HFODT) a privately funded 501c3 nonprofit organization that adapts homes for injured veterans as well as helping with therapeutic accommodations.
During this 92 mile walk we decided to create our own nonprofit to help veterans in need. Our goal is to continue to raise awareness that the average number of veterans that commit suicide each day is 22. By bringing awareness to the community about the struggles that veterans have, we hope to keep this subject top of mind.
