Join Operation Shockwave for the 2nd annual
Operation Shockwave is focused on Veteran suicide prevention using complementary and integrative healing modalities. The 2nd Annual RUN2SAVE22 5K is a way for all of us to focus on the community health approach to Veteran suicide prevention. We can all be #BetterTogether for Veterans and their families and raise awareness on this important issue. All proceeds benefit Operation Shockwave Veteran integrative healing programs in service of 500,000 Veterans and their family members living in Arizona.
Suicide is preventable and there are several actions that can help make a difference:
- Reach out to the Veterans in your life to let them know that you care. Send a text, swing by to check-in, or simply ask, “How’s it going?”
- Respond with compassion if someone indicates they are having suicidal thoughts. Remain calm and engaged. Do not leave the Veteran alone and seek immediate assistance with emergency services (911) and/or the Veterans Crisis Line (Text 838255 or Call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1).
