Event description

Description

The Walk for the Fallen, sponsored by Black Force MMA, is an annual summer event. The walk is a grueling 30 mile road march from Black Force MMA located in Summerville, SC to Waterfront Park, Mount Pleasant, SC. The walk’s, first and foremost priority, is to walk in memory of service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country and to honor all those who have served.

Founded by Navy Veteran and Black Force MMA owner, Dwight Decker; this walk brings awareness to the difficulties veterans face when returning to civilian life, and the unfortunate reality of 26 to 30 suicides by veterans every single day. Representatives from each branch of service are present to participate in the walk to carry their respective branch’s flag. The American flag is also carried. In addition, Dwight carries what has been christened, “The Honor Flag.” The Honor Flag contains names of hundreds of veterans who are provided by our participants and sponsors. We accept a $5 donation per name added to The Honor Flag. Upon completion of the walk there is an emotional ceremony around the flag pole where Dwight reads each veteran’s name, rank and status. Many of which are deceased.

Afterward, catered BBQ is provided for the participants and their families with food available for purchase for visitors/spectators.

Last year the Walk for the Fallen had 80 participants and was able to donate over $4,000.00 for #Mission22 (www.misssion22.com) as our beneficiary. Our goal this year is to double the participants and triple the amount collected. This year we have added Grappling PTSD to our list of beneficiaries.
