Mountain Mama's campaign for Next Rung

The suicide rate amongst our first responders has been an issue for some time and Next Rung wants to fight that. These firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs we see out there put in long hours, sleepless nights, and see things no one ever should. They run into something most would run from to save a life, or to save your property. These long hours, sleepless nights and scenes they see has an effect on these individuals. 

Mountain Mama's Outfitter is wanting to help Next Rung spread the word about their mission. In the next 23 days we plan to ride our bicycles from the Mexican border to the Canadian border to spread the word. Along the way we will be stopping at fire departments to show our support for our first responders, as well as providing information about Next Rung and the services they offer.
Help us show support to our first responders by donating. They will be there to help on your worst day. All you have to do is pick up a phone and dial. Show your support for the help they provide by donating to Next Rung so they can provide the resources needed to help.
