New English Brewing Company is finding ways to give back to the community by helping support a great cause the SoCal Ruck 2016. The event will be held on July 16th, 2016 from 7 am-4 pm at Liberty Station- – 2455 Cushing Rd, San Diego, CA 92107. This will be the third time this event has been held in San Diego, CA. SoCal Ruck Organizers Code Four Foundation do this every year to bring awareness to the fact that 22 veterans commit suicide on a daily basis. That is simply 22 too many. Ruck with us for 22 miles and raise money for veterans programs and their families by getting sponsored for every mile YOU or your TEAM complete.
Scott Zimmer, President of Code Four Foundation: ” Many of the people Code Four Foundation help out are prior military veterans. While the outside effects of PTSD may not be visible, the internal effects of it are very real and serious. 22 veterans a day taking their own lives is a number we must work at to reduce. These heroic men and women who have proudly served our country deserve and need our hep and support.”
The Craft Beer Industry is filled with some amazing people who have some big hearts and the team over at New English Brewing Company are a great example of that. They reached out to let us know about this amazing event and when we asked why they decided to sponsor it they shared their passion for helping Veterans.
“New English Brewing is honored to be the official beer sponsor for SoCalRuck 2016. This worthy cause will raise awareness and funds to support veterans returning from conflict who are suffering with PTSD as well as physical wounds.”
Says Simon Lacey, owner and head brewer: ‘The idea that every day 22 veterans will end their own lives is a tragedy. New English Brewing has long supported other veterans causes and supporting the SoCalRuck is a natural extension of our firm belief that we as a society must engage with the veteran community. Anything we can do is but a small gesture of gratitude to the brave men and women to whom we all owe so much and who now need our help.’ “
