Members of the Sigma Nu fraternity at UC Davis have made it their mission to raise awareness of post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury suffered by one-third of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

To show solidarity for what these veterans endure and to symbolize the long, difficult journey of returning home, 15 members will embark soon on what will be their second annual trek along the John Muir Trail in Northern California. Starting Sept. 13, they will go “Trekking for the Troops,” covering more than 100 miles in 11 days, culminating their journey by summiting Mount Whitney.

The fraternity brothers have teamed up with The Pathway Home, a Yountville center that provides resources and support for soldiers suffering from PTSD and other post-battle ailments. Each member has pledged to raise $1,000 for The Pathway Home. Local residents who would like to offer their support may send a check payable to The Pathway Home to Trekking For The Troops, ASUCD Box 106, UC Davis, One Shields Ave., Davis, CA 95616-8530. Please include “TFT” in the memo line.

Over the past five years, The Pathway Home has served more than 300 returning veterans and helped more than 130 families cope with combat-related stress, PTSD and mental issues arising from traumatic brain injuries.
