Veterans march for PTSD May 24
Thousands March to Raise Awareness for PTSD and Veteran Suicide. Chicago Veterans will walk 20 miles from Glencoe to Chicago on May 24th
Chicago Veterans announced today that it will host their 6th Annual Chicago Veterans Ruck March on Friday, May 24th, 2019. The march will begin at 8 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park in Glencoe and end at North Avenue Beach on Chicago’s lakefront.
For the sixth year in a row, Chicago Veterans will be joined by over 2,000 fellow veterans, family members and friends who will march 20 miles to honor and remember military men and women who were lost at home and on the battlefield. They will march with combat boots and rucksacks through the suburbs of Winnetka, Wilmette, and Evanston, before arriving in Chicago around 4 p.m. Along the way, they will raise awareness for PTSD and the epidemic that surrounds veteran suicide. The 20-mile ruck represents the 20 veterans that are lost every single day to suicide, according to a study done by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“Our goal is to continue raising awareness and hopefully reach our brothers and sisters who might be suffering in silence,” said Kevin Barszcz, President of Chicago Veterans. “Raising awareness for PTSD and the veteran suicide epidemic is especially close to our hearts and something that effects the entire Chicagoland community. We hope to reach as many veterans as possible and let our brother and sisters know they are not alone.”
