Justin Fitch's Final Mission
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!
We have a $2500 match donation from Modern Woodman of America towards the creation of the petting zoo.
We have already raised $507 of the match so please help us with any small donation to get closer to our goal!
Its been 364 days since we lost Justin but we keep pushing towards completing his goal of the retreat.
Please donate so we can hit the goal and get this match donation.
Together we can hit the goal of $352,000 by the ned of this year. We are now just a little over $20,00 away from the goal. Please make a small donation and email your friends so we can do this to help the visiting military families.
We are setting a new goal of $20,000 to build the petting zoo for military children who visit the center.
Please make a small donation and share this goal so we can hit it by October 3rd.
Together we can hit the total.
This brings a smile to my face. Just two weeks ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer that has spread to my lymph nodes. It is amazing the kindness and love and support strangers give. We are all human and none of us are immune from this horrible monster we call cancer. My family has started a gofund me for my medical costs but I'm donating to this one because it will help so so many others.
Justin, you have accomplished what few can - you have left a lasting legacy that will help our hurting heroes for decades (at least) to come. You have selflessly served and inspired a nation. And you have given us the finest example of what it means to be an American. This veteran is honored by you, and deeply saddened by your loss. My prayers go out to you and your loved ones during this difficult time. You, sir, are a hero in the truest sense, and you have my profound and eternal respect and gratitude.
