During National Recovery Month (September 2017), Warriors Heart, first private residential treatment program in the U.S. solely dedicated to veterans and first responders, will be honored by Fresh Thyme Farmers Market at their 3rd Annual Fundraiser Golf Classic on September 20, 2017, in the Chicago, Illinois area. To help raise awareness of veteran suicide and prevention, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market will present donation checks to two charities (Warriors Heart Foundation and Mission 22) at the Cog Hill Country Club (with approximately 450 players on multiple courses).

Former Special Forces and Warriors Heart Founder Tom Spooner shared, “From 9/11 to a 911 call, our military and first responders have taken care of our nation and communities, and we need to take care of them when they come home.”
