Following our tradition of support to military veterans, we've partnered with Active Heroes, a nonprofit that works to end veteran suicide through the practice of healing activities and peer mentoring.
Frontier will assist Active Heroes with this activities across the country. Among them: Ruck March (also called a “Forced March,”—participants walk at a fast pace over rugged terrain with a weighted backpack), 5K walks, gym workouts, weight-lifting competitions and social events for military families.
Active Heroes also helps dogs learn basic skills such as “sit”, “stay”, or walk on a leash on several military families’ special events. For more information, visit activeheroes.org.
Get involved with Active Heroes’ Peer Mentor Program and become a certified suicide-prevention, first-response peer mentor.
Last month we partnered with Active Heroes to send hundreds of veterans to “The Country Nation College Tour presented by Frontier Communications,” that took place at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Troy Yocum, President of Active Heroes, said his nonprofit is “looking forward to pairing Frontier employees with our national activities to support thousands of veterans. These volunteers will help veterans transition and find community engagement.”
