10 couples will begin the Veterans Wellness and Healing Retreat on November 17.

The week-long retreat helps veterans who are suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and their spouses through experiential education, counseling, equine experience, yoga and stress reduction activities.

The retreat is free for the couples, but costs $5,000 per couple to produce. The goal is to raise $50,000 by November 17.

Statistics suggest about 20 veterans per day commit suicide. Your donation will go toward helping prevent suicides and healing marriages and families.

The opening couples ceremony will start at 4:00 pm at Baptist Camp Chaparral at 3784 Church Camp Road in Iowa Park on Sunday, November 17.
