Run Across America
Exclusive Veteran Unity Awareness Products - Limited Edition
Survival Straps is fired up to have partnered with George Chmiel and the Run Across America to raise money and awareness for PTSD and Veteran Suicide. We have created these Limited Edition and Exclusive Veteran Unity Awareness products in support of this incredible cause. Purchase a product from below and proudly join us in this amazing effort!
George Chmiel, American Patriot and Extreme Athlete, is using his Run Across America to drive awareness of Veteran Suicide, PTSD, and other issues our heroes face as they re-acclimate to civilian life following their service to our great country. Proceeds of each sale benefit our 2 charity partners - Guardian For Heroes Foundation & Paralyzed Veterans of America - to support the work each charity does to help Veterans overcome these issues.
Each product features 2 different colored awareness ribbons to symbolize the two main issues the Run Across America is driving awareness for:
- Yellow - Veteran Suicide. Every day we lose on average 20 Veterans to suicide. We lose more Veterans to suicide than we do to war. 1 Veteran per day is a travesty, 20 per day is downright unacceptable. This is an epidemic and we need to do a better job as a country to overcome this devastating problem.
- Teal - PTSD. The wounds of war are real and have a direct impact on the Veteran suicide epidemic.
George and our crew left San Diego, CA from the front flight deck of the USS Midway on September 11th 2016 and will finish in NYC at the World Trade Center & 9/11 Memorial on January 24th, 2017.
