At each our Club matches MetroWest Tactical plans on having a fun side stage to raise money for the Active Heroes program Aiming For Zero. The effort is lead by MWT member Jim Housley.
Aiming For Zero provides the national competitive shooting community a channel through which to focus their efforts to raise awareness of veteran suicide epidemic and raise funds to end it. Individuals, groups, or clubs can register to host side stages, full matches or use any other creative methods at their local ranges to raise funds for Active Heroes, a 501(c)(3) charity, based in Louisville, KY.
The ultimate purpose of Aiming for Zero is to reduce veteran suicide and assist Military Families by:
- Establishing camaraderie to cope with Post Traumatic Stress (anger, depression, loneliness, substance abuse and suicidal tendencies). Uniting veterans, families and supporters to care for each other in times of need.
- Training Team Leaders how to interact with suicidal veterans and the steps to assist them.
- Developing a Peer Mentor and Ambassador community of veterans, military families, and civilians who support struggling families and/or veterans.
- Providing free Military Family Programs from donations raised by the Aiming for Zero events that will help reduce veteran suicide and activity programs and educational programs.
