22 and You Foundation
From January 13 – February 9, 2020, John Preston, founder of 22 and You Foundation, LLC, hiked from the Bay Area to San Diego in California. During the hike, John and his team filmed their journey to create a documentary film with a current working title of “Share the Weight.”
The mission of this project is to prevent suicides and help people who are struggling with depression & post-traumatic stress by giving them an opportunity to share their inspiring stories on camera and celebrate that warrior spirit they have amid their darkness. We hope that when people watch the documentary, they will realize that they are not alone, and find new reasons to live their life to the fullest.
We are currently filming follow-up interviews with the inspiring individuals we met along the way and would love your support while we continue to gather everything we need to bring this incredible message of hope to the entire world.
“At the core of this endeavor, I am a little brother that lost his older brother. I will walk forward for our community as I have for my family these past few years. Every day, every mile I walk symbolizes a life – a life of someone who believed they could no longer be here and decided their only option was death. I will do all I can to stop this epidemic that has struck our nation’s veterans, law enforcement officers, and firefighters.”
– John Preston
