Operation Delta Dog is a Massachusetts based charity organization that aims to tackle two problems at once; the epidemic of veteran suicides and the overflow in animal shelters.
Did you know that Massachusetts is home to about 400,000 veterans and that every day, 22 veterans take their own lives in the United States... almost one per hour.
Each year, more than 50,000 dogs wind up homeless in Massachusetts. Many of these animals are sweet-tempered and trainable, but there’s just nowhere for them go.
From Operation Delta Dog
"Assistance animals are a practical and successful way to reduce stress, treat depression, and manage the panic attacks associated with PTSD and TBI. Trained dogs, however, are in short supply. Very few service-dog organizations focus solely on veterans, and even fewer utilize rescued dogs in their programs."
Join us in helping to support this amazing organization 1 week before Memorial Day, a day where we remember those who have given their service and some, the ultimate sacrifice, to our country.
We'll honor our hero's the way we know, with a hero WOD; Murph.
After, stay for food donated by local restaurants like Annas taqueria, Boloco, and a raffle with great prizes.
When: Friday May 20th 6 PM - 8:30 PM
Who: Everyone. The more the better.
The Workout: Murph
Get a team together and help Operation Delta Dog!
