‘Lunge for Legacy’ is being launched for the first time to help keep our community engaged by participating in an online form of fundraising.
In 1923 Legacy made a promise to help the family members of veterans to carry on with their lives after the loss or injury of their loved one.
Today, Legacy supports 43,000 partners and children of veterans who have given their lives or health serving our country.
This September we ask you to commit to 1000 lunges; 500 each leg to represent the 500+ families who have lost a veteran to suicide since 2001.
For every veteran, there are up to 6 people that will be affected by their death. That’s almost 3,000 family members who have lost their loved ones to suicide alone. Legacy is there for those families in the worst times, to ensure they are not left behind.
Take on the challenge of 1000 lunges throughout September to raise awareness and vital funds for the 500+ family members of veterans who have lost a loved one since 2021 to suicide.
Choose a goal that you feel comfortable with and get going!
1000 Lunges 500+ families who have lost a veteran to suicide.
3000 Lunges Number of family members affected by veteran suicide.
5000 Lunges Number of veterans who will struggle with PTSD.
