#ETXB Stop Soldier Suicide Awareness Skate-A-Thon

About This Campaign

Every day 22+ Veterans and 1 Active Duty Soldier take their own lives. Burdened with the stigma associated with mental health issues and the military “shame” surrounding PTS (Post Traumatic Stress), they instead turn to suicide as their only option to relieve suffering.

The East Texas Bombers are passionate about soldier and veteran issues and would like your help raising money for the high-touch services that stopsoldiersuicide.org provides with connection to resources for many of the stresses faced: job loss, relationship issues, mental health needs, financial worries, housing and more.

Recently, our local National Guard Unit, A BTRY, 1-133 Field Artillery, suffered the loss of a young soldier to suicide and we would like to honor the memory of PV2 Phillip W. Chambers by receiving pledges for laps skated by members of the local Women's Flat Track Roller Derby team, the East Texas Bombers #ETXB.

Each participating skater will have one hour to complete as many laps of continuous skating as possible and your pledge will be based on the number of laps she skates. i.e. $.10 per lap at 100 laps = $10 donation.

Stop Soldier Suicide

Campaign to Support Stop Soldier Suicide

Help us end Veteran suicide.


Stop Soldier Suicide is the first national Veteran-founded and led non-profit relentlessly dedicated to the epidemic of - and cure for - suicide among Service Members. 

We understand the problems and issues of Military suicide are too complex for a single answer. Our skilled Case Managers find the right solution for each person. 

And it's not a single conversation. We follow up over a two year period help as long as is needed. 

Our evidenced-based approach makes us truly unique. 

And our mission is simple:

We offer empowerment to those who have served and are serving still.
