On Nov 11, 2019, March A Mile volunteers will begin a journey across the United States. The March Across The USA Team will be marching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, along the way bringing awareness to Suicide Prevention, PTSD, MST and other Veteran and First Responder issues. Their goal is to bring individuals and communities together by reminding us that even in our darkest hour we are never alone. In addition we hope to raise $100,000 to be donated to various nonprofits in support of Suicide Prevention, Veterans and First Responders of which 25% will go directly to fund March A Miles OnlinePeerSupport.com We will be posting details soon.
