About Us

Fort Wayne 22, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit, is organized to facilitate community involvement in the support and assistance of Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) while simultaneously educating on suicide prevention and mental illness. The organization was established in June 2014 by two area Marines, Jarred White and Tyler Egbert, in response to the Veteran suicide epidemic. Both men felt compelled to take action and promote change within their local communities by creating an annual event representing the 22 plus Veterans that take their own lives everyday due to unresolved mental health ailments.
