Founded by Tracey Nazarenus, the Crusaders are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that runs the “Second Chance Ranch” for young girls. The organization engages the girls in hard work, equestrian competition, and a pay-it-forward program that helps Veterans and their families deal with the every day issues of PTSD.
This platform was devised to help raise the funds, awareness and engagement necessary to make a real impact on the number of daily suicides that take the lives of so many of our Veterans.
20 Suicides may not sound like a lot, but that’s every day (almost 1 an hour), and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot more happening that leads up to a suicide that gives us the opportunity to interject, helping stop the downward spiral before it’s too late.
