Irreverent Warriors Silkies Hike - Savannah
About This Activity
THE ACTUAL HIKE ITSELF IS FOR VETERANS, ACTIVE DUTY, NATIONAL GUARD, AND RESERVISTS
Participants hike 22km (13.67 miles), while carrying 22kg (48.5lbs), wearing Silkies, combat boots, and a ruck - 22 representing the 22 military suicides a day. Irreverent Warriors is preventing veteran suicide through the use of unconventional therapy.
Veterans are different, and therefore use different methods of coping. In the face of tragedy, a veteran is more likely to use humor and camaraderie as a coping mechanism than anything else. In 7 months Irreverent Warriors has brought together over 7000 veterans around the country to laugh, connect, bond,and support each other. No other organization has brought anywhere close to this many veterans together. Clearly, our methods work.
Civilians are not allowed to hike but are welcome to volunteer and/or meet us at the restaurant/bar stops along the way!
