Fort Wayne 22, Inc. is organized to facilitate community involvement in the support and assistance of Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) while simultaneously educating on suicide prevention and mental illness. The organization was established June 2014 by two combat Marines, Jarred White and Tyler Egbert, in response to the Veteran suicide epidemic. Both men felt compelled to take action and promote change within their local communities by creating an annual event representing the 20 plus Veterans that take their own lives everyday due to unresolved mental health ailments. The event boasts a 22-kilometer police escorted hike, silent auction, live music, and food as well as other family-friendly events such as rock climbing, inflatables, and military vehicle and aviation displays.
Registration begins at 9:00 AM. Step-off begins at 10:00 AM.
