About this Event
For many of America's Veterans, the toughest battle begins when they come home. As a result, what started as a suicide crisis within the Military has become a full-blown silent epidemic claiming untold numbers. The Hike Back is the story of Irreverent Warriors, a free-spirited and unique organization started by Veterans for Veterans – their mission is to end Veteran suicide. The crazy thing? Where pills and therapy are failing, they are succeeding. The Hike Back is the story of raw and broken Veterans turning the tide -- one hike at a time.
Since 2016, we have hosted veteran suicide prevention hikes in Memphis, falling under Irreverent Warriors officially in 2019. To date, we've had over 1000 participants in our hikes here locally, with hundreds more attending our other events throughout the year. Memphis has the highest veteran population in the state of Tennessee, and we have a thriving veteran community. Irreverent Warriors mission is to "Bring veterans together, using humor and camaraderie, to improve mental health and prevent veteran suicide." With your support, we can continue our mission well into the future!
Doors at Malco on the Square open at 630, with the screening beginning promptly at 7pm. Following the screening, we will be heading across the street to Lafayette's Music Room for a meet and greet with silent auction. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and VIP packages are available. VIP tickets include reserved seating in the theater, light hors d'oeurves, and beverage tickets.
