"Peter's thought was there's so much more needed to give back to the community and this is a way he could help raise awareness by doing something dramatic -- 100 miles in 24 hours. Not many people could do it. So, that's to bring awareness to this important cause of ending veteran suicide," said Steve Makredes.
