Shepherd Center & SHAREWe're Running To raise $1M for SHARE Military Initiative
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affect 1 in every 5 service members that return home from Iraq or Afghanistan. These injuries are unseen to the naked eye but devastating to the service members, as well as the families suffering along with them. Too often, TBI and PTSD lead to broken homes and even suicide.
Our goal is to raise valuable resources and all-important awareness for the mission of the SHARE Military Initiative and society’s responsibility related to caring for and supporting our warriors in need.
The SHARE Military Initiative at Shepherd Center has been saving lives through innovative research and treatment. We're running from Freedom Tower in New York City to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia to raise money for, and awareness about, the growing problem of TBI and PTSD for our returning warriors.
We live in the greatest country in the world. This country has provided us and millions of others an opportunity to be free and proud citizens. We ask you to join us in this journey of helping saving those lives which have purchased our freedom.
The inaugural Shepherd's Men Journey was May 19-25, 2014. We ran 684 miles from Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia to the Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. Our efforts raised over $125,000 for Shepherd Center, funding the SHARE Military Initiative for one month.
