***** ANNOUNCEMENT *****

#W4F2017 BENEFICIARY IS #MISSION22

To learn more about this AWESOME organization, please visit them at www.mission22.com or their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/mi22ion. We are very excited to partner with them this year. Veteran suicides due to PTSD and TBI are tragic for their families, firends, and our country! Our donation this year will help them with their important work of getting veterans suffering from their injuries the help they so desperately want and deserve! PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM!

The Walk for the Fallen is an annual fundraising event, organized by Black Force MMA (BFMMA) in Summerville, SC to benefit a local veteran's charity. "We walk for those who cannot." This is our 4th year and we are looking to make this year bigger and better than the last!

Participants will walk nearly 30 miles from Summerville, SC to Patriots Point, Mount Pleasant, SC in a show of support for and solidarity with our US service members who have served, who currently serve, and most importantly for those who sacrificed life and limb in service to our country.

Many people ask why we walk in mid-July, during the hottest part of the Summer, and the reason is simple. Our service members do not have the luxury to choose the date, place, time, or weather they will endure while serving and many are serving in some of the hottest regions of the world.

This year we will be providing individual registration and team registration. Individual registration is for those participants who want to walk (or attempt to walk) the entire distance. Team registration is for 5 team members who will each walk one leg of the trek (or will walk in pairs), while the other team members ride in their personal escort vehicle (POV). Once we meet at the foot of the bridge, all team members will walk together over the Ravenel Bridge and into Patriot's Point. Once there, we have a cermony at the flag pole to honor those who served, and then will retire to the picnic area where there will be food and drinks for participants and their family members.

We are also accepting donations - for every $5 you donate, you get to add one servicemembers name (alive or deceased) to our Honor Cloth for them to be honored in our closing ceremony.

This year, we'd like more public attendance at the after-party, so please invite your friends and family to cheer you on as you walk into Patriot's Point and ask them to buy a Pre-Sale BBQ dinner!

We are also selling T-shirts! Ask your family member and friends to buy a T-shirt to support your participation!

***VOLUNTEERS**** Sign up today and join us in supporting the walkers during this event! Teri will be in touch to see how you would like to contribute.
