The "22 Strong" event is a fundraising walk to benefit veteran's charities. Participants will walk 22 miles starting at West Port Plaza to the parking lot of Wright Construction Services, Inc. in St. Peters. The purpose of this walk is to show our support and solidarity with the US service members who have served, who currently serve, and for those who sacrificed everything in service to their country. 22 miles was chosen to represent the 22 veterans who commit suicide each and every day. Mission 22, Six String Heroes, and Focus Marines Foundation - The beneficiaries of this walk - are determined to eliminate that awful statistic. They need your help in this mission.
