Rotary Ride for Veteran’s

Local Brentwood Rotarians recently took up the challenge to raise enough money to pay for one complete 14-week treatment stay at The Pathway Home, a treatment facility for veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Everyday more than two dozen veterans are lost to suicide.  The Pathway Home’s treatment program is one way to reverse that horrible statistic.

 

Every year the Napa Rotary Club puts on an event called the Cycle for Sight/Rotary Ride for Veteran’s.  This is the sixth year the Brentwood Rotary Club has participated.  During their first year they raised $1500 and last year they shattered their $10,000 goal by raising $13,000!  They shattered their goal for this year, $15,000 by raising $20,000!

The Pathway Home, Inc. is a privately funded organization that provides comprehensive treatment for the nations’ military personnel who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They assist those impacted by PTSD, TBI and other post-combat mental health challenges to successfully reintegrate into their families and the community at large.  Since opening their doors in 2008, The Pathway Home, Inc. has successfully helped 420 warriors and 180 of their family members to cope with the effects of PTSD and TBI.
