Peter Guidry and his wife Kelley are embarking on a 2,222 mile journey to raise money as a part of their #22DamnMany campaign. The campaign name represents the amount of Veterans who commit suicide in the U.S. every 24 hours. These two Air Force veterans also started their own nonprofit, “Forgotten Not Gone.”
“We’re not some person in a three-piece suit starting a veterans organization because it’s a good idea,”Guidry said. We are the suffering veteran that got around it with other veterans to figure out how to overcome the thing that was holding us back.”
Peter choses to ride trikes since he’s used the activity to cope with his own personal PTSD.
“It makes you feel like a kid again,” Guidry said. Learn more about Peter and his wife’s work at “Forgotten Not Gone.”
