Lift For The 22 is a nonprofit non-governmental organization that seeks to fight the veteran suicide epidemic, transitional depression/anxiety and service connected PTSD by creating a transitional support network centered on fitness. Founded in 2015 by 6-year Navy Corpsman Carter Davis, the organization's headquarters is located in Beaverton, Oregon, United States. Wade Luethi, another former Marine serves as Chief Strategy Officer and Dennis Wright, the project’s first beneficiary, serves as Chief Operating Officer.[1][2] The name is symbolic of the number of veterans who commit suicide every day due to post traumatic stress.[3]Lift For The 22 purchases and acquires donated gym memberships from fitness facilities across the country and re-distributes those memberships to veterans located near the facilities.
