"CARRY THE FALLEN" STATELINER FOOTBALL PLAYERS SUPPORT OUR TROOPS
On Saturday, August 5, 2017, Phillipsburg football players and coaching staff members participated in the "Carry the Fallen"event to help raise awareness towards PTSD. The approximately 8-mile hike started at 10 a.m. and returned to the pavilion around 1 p.m. for a picnic with goods donated by local restaurants and businesses. Participants ruck-march while carrying weight that symbolizes the burden that many veterans carry after war or through PTSD. The purpose of Carry The Fallen is to reduce veteran suicide -- something that affects an average of 22 veterans and their families each day. Phillipsburg football is proud to support our troops.
