I am the Fundraising Director for Endurance for Veterans (“E4V”). I am in the process of organizing the 2nd Annual Endurance for Veterans Car Show, which will be held on May 21, 2017 at Sonny’s Place in Somers, Connecticut. All the proceeds from the car show will go to E4V and our research project.
It is estimated that 22 veterans take their own lives every day. Our mission is to reduce this number by providing them with the opportunity to heal and rehabilitate through physical fitness. E4V offers our veterans a chance to reconnect to the community, build confidence and establish a sense of pride. In order to make sure that what we are doing is effective, Endurance for Veterans is conducting a research project to study the effectiveness of physical fitness on PTSD symptoms with researchers from Yale. This will allow us to develop a sustainable program that can be used as a potential treatment for PTSD.
