On Saturday, March 28th, Tuthill employees, friends, and family joined Team Rubicon, The Mission Continues, and Team Red, White, & Blue in their annual Run as One 5K to raise awareness of veteran suicide and reintegration.
Over 5,000 people from 112 locations across the country came out to show support for these three volunteer organizations including 50 members of the Tuthill community in Springfield, MO and Chicago, IL. It was cold, windy, and even snowing in Springfield, but nothing was going to stop us from joining our cause partner, Team Rubicon, in showing support for such an important cause.
It was great to see so many people participating in something so much bigger than themselves. Over 22 veterans a day take their own lives and struggle to reintegrate with society as civilians. These organizations have come together for the fourth time in four years to raise awareness of what they stand for.
