WRIGHT CARES


22 STRONG EVENT

Our 4th Annual 22 Mile Walk is scheduled in person on Saturday, September 24, 2022. We will also host our Virtual 22 Day Challenge September 3 – 24, 2022. The goal of each of these events is to raise awareness and funds for organizations dedicated to eliminating veteran suicide.

The challenge is simple: walk 22 miles to benefit veterans at the community and national level.

The 22 Strong Challenge is an event series that honors and supports United States Military Veterans. In 2021, we offered a 22 Day Virtual Challenge and a 22 Mile In-Person Walk. The number 22 is significant to our event because it represents the 22 veterans who lose their lives to suicide every day. Our goal is to support our community of veterans and bring awareness to the charities we support. Virtual walkers joined us from 18 states across the country, and over 100 people walked with us in St. Charles, Missouri on September 11, 2021. In 2022, we will host our 4th annual event series.

In 2019, we hosted our inaugural 22-mile walk. We raised $22,000 and donated the proceeds to three beneficiaries: Mission 22, Six String Heroes, and FOCUS Marines Foundation. We held a virtual 22-day challenge in 2020 and raised $40,000 which we distributed to seven organizations in our community: Mission 22, Six String Heroes, FOCUS Marines Foundation, Gateway Blue Star Mothers, Got Your Six PTSD Support Dogs, Joshua Chamberlain Society, and the St. Charles County Veteran’s Museum. In 2021, we raised over $50,000 to support Mission 22, FOCUS Marines Foundation, Gateway Blue Star Mothers, Got Your Six PTSD Support Dogs, Joshua Chamberlain Society, and the St. Charles County Veteran’s Museum. We are looking forward to continuing our tradition of giving back to veterans in our community.
