Supper proud he’s representing the US with a new race number #22! This number holds great importance to him and fellow veterans. Quick little history on where it comes from
In 2012, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Administration (VA) released a Suicide Data Report that found an average of 22 veterans die by suicide everyday.
From that the @22killboston initiative was started, at first just as a social media movement to raise awareness and later became an official 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Committed to researching and understanding the common issues connected with suicide; including Post Traumatic Stress and depression, the various circumstances that they stem from, their effects on the individual, and the impact that suicide has on family, friends, and the community as a whole.
With that said @anthonyradetic153 can't think of a better way to raise awareness and pay homage to his brothers and sisters but to race under the 22 number for the 2018 Aquabike Championship. 22Kill 🇺🇸🏁 #22kill#DieLiving#radlife#aquabike#extremesports#seadoolife#goxteamgo#runaboutGP1#pwc#jetski#watercraft#italy#suicide#ptsd#masawesomer#bemasawesomer#thewaveofchange
