Join the Delaware Tech community as we celebrate our military community by supporting 22in22 during September, Suicide Prevention Month. During the month of September, and into October, we will be hosting the following events to help you get your 22 miles in!
22in22 is a Delaware organization that raises awareness about the epidemic of veteran suicide and facilitates the assistance of national non-profit Stop Soldier Suicide, Inc. Unfortunately we have lost too many in Delaware. Nationally, we have lost over 100,000 since September 11, 2001. Veterans are 50% more susceptible to death by suicide than their civilian peers. 22in22 aims to end that.
