Welcome to Spring!
Spring is an exciting time for everyone, the green of nature returns, and the blooming flowers inspire hope for many. That’s what Active Heroes works to do every day, bring hope and support to veterans and their families struggling with PTSD. So many veterans feel they are without hope, without support, without understanding…and that’s exactly what our volunteers across the country are working to change. We NEED to grow this network of support for those that are struggling, as 20 veterans, our heroes, are committing suicide every day. And that’s why Active Heroes is here.
Locally, we’ve hosted some great events to build that awareness, and many AWESOME veteran families have stayed at the Active Heroes Retreat Center to find peace in nature. Events like free dental appointments for veterans near Louisville Slugger field thanks to Aspen Dental or our free monthly family event at Louisville Athletic Club are just some examples of how we are helping our community here in Kentucky. Not in Kentucky? We have plenty of events coming up nationwide in states like Arizona, Tennessee, Kansas, Massachusetts, Washington, Ohio, Florida and many others! Check out our event calendar for what’s upcoming! ( https://activeheroes.org/event-calendar/ ) Think you’re up for hosting an event yourself? Sign up to be a team leader, and we will personally guide you through hosting an event and support you throughout the process!
