Ramonans to participate in Carry the Fallen fundraiser

A group of Ramona residents invite others to join them in Carry the Fallen, a 12-hour fundraiser for Active Heroes on Sunday, Nov. 10.

The goal is to raise awareness of and money for veterans and their families who are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and veteran suicide. All money donated will go to Active Heroes, a 501(c)(3) organization that helps military families dealing with these issues. Active Heroes’ mission is to help provide coping skills for active duty military, veterans and their families to manage the stress and triggering points that lead to suicide.

Amanda Truesdale of Hidden Strength Fitness is leader of the Ramona team. She and her crew will be walking up and down Highway 67 and Main Street the day before Veterans Day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to draw attention to the cause.

Those wishing to contribute or participate are welcome. For more information, contact Truesdale at 760-440-0215.
