To eliminate the number of women Veteran suicides through an integrated recovery program for Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The fact is this: We, as a nation, have an epidemic on our hands.
On the 22nd of every month, we will release a new workout. You can do the workout on your own or with friends and record your score as a registered athlete. Become a registered athlete, with a $50 annual donation, at www.operation22mst.org/register.
If you would like your gym to host a workout as a fundraiser event, please contact us.
In addition, stay tuned for special, surprise “celebrity CrossFit” athlete drop-ins, prize giveaways, and additional team-builder events.
Finally, we will be planning several seminars across the country on Military Sexual Trauma, how the physical component, like CrossFit, of Integrative Therapy helps survivors recover, and you’ll hear personal stories from successful Military Sexual Trauma Survivors.
Operation 22:MST is a fundraising effort for Integrated Recovery Foundation (IRF). IRF seeks to provide, completely free to the patient, a nationally recognized, integrated treatment system that addresses the whole person: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Learn more about IRF at irf22.org.
The epidemic of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) needs to be addressed. It is our obligation as veterans, spiritual people and fellow human beings, to treat, and ultimately prevent, Military Sexual Trauma.
Our CrossFit ambassador to Operation22MST is multi-time Games athlete Josh Bridges. Josh’s military service and his commitment to fitness are a welcome addition to our team.
We find that CrossFit athletes share the same perseverance, drive, and ability to overcome adversity as our women veteran MST survivors. If you are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact us.
