The Cuddy Family Foundation for Veterans
HER FIRST FIFTY
We are proud to announce that Melissa McKenney, the mother of a USAF Airman on active duty, will be hiking 50K on behalf of our foundation at the My First 50 trail event on 10/14/23 in Williamsburg (VA)!
Melissa is doing this to raise awareness about the alarming suicide rates for veterans. Our foundation is not just concerned with the actual suicide rate for veterans, but also the rate of attempted suicides that is estimated to be at least 40-50 times higher. That rarely gets addressed. We cannot stop suicides after they happen; we must work to stop the attempts.
You can support Melissa's effort to complete this 50K hike and, more importantly, the missions of our foundation by making a tax-deductible donation at this link. Please select her name from the pull-down menu.
Thank you! And check out her cool competition shirt here, too!
