Justin Fitch's Final Mission

22 veterans a day take their own lives due to triggering points associated with post traumatic stress. That's over 8000 veteran suicides a year.

Justin Fitch is a retired U.S. Army combat Veteran who knows what it's like to have post traumatic stress. Justin was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2014 and fights everyday to raise awareness and funds to help develop a military family retreat center called the Active Heroes Retreat. Now in the last months of his life, Justin is calling upon everyone to step up and support the Active Heroes Retreat and help build the first cabin. Chive Charities donated the $25,000 needed to build the road to the Family Retreat Center. Our goal now is to raise $78,000 to help build the first cabin at the retreat and make Justin's dream a reality before his end.

Active Heroes is a 501c3 charity with a mission to reduce veteran suicide. 22 veterans a day take their own lives and Active Heroes is working towards reducing these numbers by developing a military family retreat center in Shepherdsville, KY. The retreat is 144 acres and has been in development for 18 months. Fundraising has helped to get needed equipment, the first road, statues, archery course and landscaping but help is really needed to build the first cabin. Please support this campign and help us accomplish Justin's final mission before it's too late!
