Charity Information

Staff Sergeant Brandon C. Franzen was a 12 year Veteran of the United States Army. On July 17, 2019, at only 34 years old, surrounded by his family and close friends, he lost a hard battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In 2020, the Brandon C. Franzen Memorial 5k Run/Walk held its first annual 5k and managed, in the midst of a pandemic, to raise over $4,000 for Operation Untiltheresnone: No Buddy Fights Alone in the effort to end Veteran suicide related to PTSD. I am proud to announce that all proceeds from the Brandon C. Franzen Memorial 5k Run/Walk will be donated to Untiltheresnone. My organization hopes, with a lot of hard work, to surpass the amount raised in 2020 and 2021.  We have set a goal to raise $5,000 in 2022.  Let us work together to lower and eliminate the amount of Veteran suicides related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The fight doesn't end when our soldiers come home.
