May 19-20, 2018 - Two days on the range at Bull Hill Training Ranch with moving targets, distance challenges and open range time. Catered dinner Saturday evening. Camping on site is available. 

This is also a chance to get to know the American Freedom Fund Shooting Team and add your name to the roster of Veterans interested in joining us for competitive shooting events. 

Registration cost is $150 and includes range time, dinner on Saturday and a genuine Grunt Style Catch 22 t-shirt. 

22 veterans die everyday by their own hand. It’s 22 too many. The brothers and sisters in arms who are left behind bear the exponential burden of that loss along with the ones who have fallen in battle. Caught between survivors guilt and trying to make sense of life without a mission or a team, these are the struggles that face our veterans. The American Freedom Fund, along with the Big Voice, is here to catch the 22 before they fall. Join us in our mission this Memorial Day Weekend. 

The Catch 22 Memorial Day Event is held in honor of those who were lost in battle as well as on the frontlines back at home.

But why 22 miles? It is estimated that around 22 veterans commit suicide everyday. But we don’t want just raise awareness to this issue. We want to combat and end it. By joining together we will walk in remembrance of the fallen, but never forgotten. Arrive as one, leave as one of many.

This is event is open to the public and we encourage everyone to come out and walk with us. Bring a four-legged fur friend if you like. Registration donations go to supporting the mission of AFF. 

Buy tickets here!!!
