February 2, 2012 (Washington, DC)   NOT ALONE (www.notalone.com), a 501c3 dedicated to reducing suicide rates among returning warriors and their families and increasing awareness and free, private, confidential treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), is proud to announce that their running team is complete and ready to participate in The Rock N’ Roll USA Marathon in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, March 17, 2012. over 50 military spouses, warriors, family members and NOT ALONE supporters will lace up their shoes in order to raise awareness against these invisible war-related traumas our military families deal with on a daily basis.
Coming home from war is often just the start of the battle for our military veterans and their families.  There are as many as 18 suicides per day among all U.S. veterans, and a veteran is 12 times more likely to die by his or her own hand after leaving the military than to be killed in action by an enemy combatant while on active duty. In addition, estimates show more than 300,000 veterans are suffering from PTSD, and 75% of these men and women will not receive adequate treatment. Combined with their parents, significant others and children, 1.5 million Americans are deeply affected by the aftermath of war.
So again, please donate today to help us in our fight to support our veterans:  http://www.active.com/donate/notaloneteam
and you are also invited to join us for a NOT ALONE Cocktail Reception at the famous Chef Todd Gray’s WATERSHED on 1225 First Street, NE, Washington, C.C. 20002.  $100 per person donation is for unlimited beer and wine, great music, and exquisite food prepared by the famous Chef Todd Gray.  Online at Not Alone Cocktail Reception or call 615-243-7400 today.
“Every dollar counts and it will go toward helping a warrior or family member in the lives after war.” says Mike Jones, NOT ALONE Co-Founder and Executive Director.  “We need the help of the community, please help us give back to our veterans and their families.”
NOT ALONE is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization offering information and a range of support services dedicated to empowering returning warriors and their loved ones who face the challenges of life after war. NOT ALONE provides no cost programs, resources and services to warriors and families impacted by combat stress and PTSD through a confidential and anonymous community.  NOT ALONE is unique because it was founded by warriors with personal experience facing combat stress and post-traumatic stress disorder.
