We ask participants to commit to a one-month fitness challenge, start a Facebook fundraiser for SSS, and elevate the conversation around military suicide in their communities.
The resources our challenge participants raise support our Wellness Center operations. That’s our team of behavioral health experts providing critical, trauma-informed care to veterans and service members at high risk for suicide.
We're proud to partner with USAA as the presenting sponsor for our Facebook Challenges in 2022. Like us, USAA is a leader in the military community. Their support helps us reach even more people across the country to join our challenge communities and fight to reduce the military suicide rate.
Learn more about how USAA is accelerating our impact here.
Join thousands of veterans, military spouses and family members, active duty service members, suicide loss survivors, and supporters who are committed to our mission.
Our goal to reduce the military suicide rate 40% by 2030 requires collective action.
Everyone is welcome to join us in the fight to save lives.
"I know a lot of Marines who have lost loved ones to suicide. If I can play a small part in someone reaching out for help, I will do that."
“As a veteran that has been in a dark place and struggles everyday to stay out of it, this gives me a goal to work towards. There's a mission. There's an objective. I feel like I'm still in the community and supporting people like me.”
“I joined this challenge because I’m a trauma therapist, and my passion is helping veterans and first responders overcome trauma, as well as prevention. I understand the need in this area and want to do anything I can to support the military community.”
“In 2011, I lost a very close friend to suicide. He was actively serving in the Marines and had dreams of owning a gym one day and becoming a personal trainer. He’s my inspiration to take on this challenge. I need to do it for him, myself, and anyone out there who feels like they’re alone.”
"After I got out of the Marines, I was suicidal. My wife, church, and Stop Soldier Suicide community all helped me recover. SSS’s Facebook Challenge community is amazing. Now, I’m taking steps to continue on my healing journey."
