“Everesting” to raise funds for research and bring awareness to brain trauma as a risk factor for suicide

Chris Kellner, a U.S. Marine Force Recon Veteran, is raising funds to bring awareness to brain trauma as a risk factor for suicide.

He supports the critical, urgent need for improved solutions for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Chris is “Everesting” and hiking his local mountain the amount of times needed to hit or surpass the height of Mt. Everest, and today he has reached the halfway point.
