Marching a Marathon to Combat Suicide

SpouseLink |

The 2014 Boston Marathon’s 26.2 mile route has already received a warm-up in the year following a tragedy that still lingers in the minds of many around the nation.

Last weekend, over 70 Service Members, Veterans and supporters dawned 50-pound backbacks and Military gear of all kinds to march through Boston to raise money and awareness about Military suicides among Vets.

‘Team Minuteman’ walked, marched, ran and rolled the distance to raise money for Active Heroes, a charity raising money to develop a Military Family Retreat in Kentucky.

Check out what you can do to help the cause.
