September is National Suicide Awareness Prevention Month

With 22 Veterans commiting suicide a day, we decided to do a 2.2 mile walk on 9/22/22 at 9:22 AM to raise awareness to veterans dealing with suicidal thoughts.

On Friday, July 14th, 2023, Fargo Police Officer Jake Wallin was killed at 23 years old while helping the town he committed to serve and protect. Officer Wallin also served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan through in the Minnesota Army Guard. We mourn the loss of this important, stand up servant of others. 

In the same senseless act of violence, two other Fargo Police officers were injured: Officer Andrew Dotas and officer Tyler Hawes. A fourth, Officer Zach Robinson, killed the gunman. These heroes risk their lives every day to serve their community. We stand behind the blue.

Heroes Compass partnered with Sandy's Donuts in Fargo, ND to distribute 400 blue lights and a limited edition Blue Line donut, showing support to our local law enforcement officers. Over $11,000 was raised to donate to the four officers families. We back the blue.

The Ruck to Remember exceeded all expectations, and we couldn't have done it without our incredible supporters. Together, we completed a challenging 22k ruck, carrying 22 pounds each, symbolizing the 22 veterans who face the daily battle of suicide.

But the impact doesn't stop there! During this extraordinary event, we raised funds, enabling us to provide adaptive equipment and gym scholarships to our deserving disabled veterans.

Additionally, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your generosity, as hundreds of pounds of food were donated. These contributions will make a real difference in the lives of those in need. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey to honor our heroes and make a positive change in our community.
