Paddles with Battles

Presented by the American Legion and sponsored by Whole Vet and Trent Bridge Development, we are focusing our efforts to fight veteran suicide on multiple fronts.

Access to resources, training opportunities for family members, veteran-owned businesses, and Job connections are all facets we have found to be contributors to the veteran suicide rate.

At our event, we hope to offer everyone connections to veteran communities, through the aforementioned facets. Combined with a 2.2-mile Kayak Run at 2:22 PM.

We have a goal to raise $25,000 to share with the non-profits in attendance. Venmo @americanlegionpost539nc
