The FLORIDA ADVENTURE 2022 is a 1350-mile, coast line boat trip around the State of Florida to promote PTSD and Suicide Awareness by taking 44 plus Veteran’s and or Public Safety Personnel fishing around the whole state of Florida.
Planned are 22 stops over a 26-day trip around Florida. From the first mile to the final one there will be two or more Veterans and/or Public Safety Personnel on the boat with us at all times. At each stop in the afternoon, they get off and the next morning two or more get on the boat for the next leg of the trip. We continue the exchange of people until we pull into the final port in Pensacola 26 days later.
The purpose of this trip is to bring PTSD and SUICIDE AWARNESS to the forefront. We want to educate the public to understand that every day an Average 22 Veterans take their own lives through suicide. Then you add an average of 5 suicides a day by Public Safety Personnel totaling 27 SUICIDES or more per day by people who have SERVED THEIR COUNTRY or SERVED THEIR COMMUNITY. They take their lives because they cannot or do not know how to deal with the images in their minds because of what their eyes have seen. That is where OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL THERAPY has proven over and over again how much it helps dealing with PTSD issues. Then, when you are around others who have been in your shoes (like minded) it makes it easier to open up about what is going on in your head because they have been there themselves. It does not matter if its fishing, hiking, or something else, it gets you out of the house and out of your own mind, even if it's only for 30 minutes at a time. It Helps clear the head a little bit.
X-22 Adventures is looking for Sponsor's to help fund and support this trip around Florida. We need fuel, lodging, boat docking, food, and fishing equipment. These are just some of the items we need to secure before we move forward with the next phase.
The cost of this trip isn't going to be cheap but you can also look at it this way; What is the price of a life who has served this Great Country or their community? For me, just one life saved from going down that dark road and ending their life is worth way more than the amount of money that it's going to take for this trip, it doesn’t even come close to the price of saving a human life.
I am looking for a Sponsor(s) for each of these items.
If you sponsor one of these Items in full you will have a larger spot
on the boat to show your support and sponsorship of this trip. There will be a board at each port showing your sponsorship of this trip as well.
The costs for the items shown below are an approximate estimate at this time:
Chase Vehicle(s) Fuel
Boat Dockage Fee’s
Fishing Rods/Reels Combos
