500 Miles to end Veteran Suicide

Josh Milich and Brian Tjersland are a pair of Ultra-runners on far ends of the spectrum when it comes to experience.

Brian a 52 year old real-estate appraiser, has completed some of the sport's most iconic and difficult races including Bad Water 135 and Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run.

Josh, a 29 year old enlisted member of the United States Coast Guard, completed his first Ultra in November of 2017 and has recently achieved his goal to finish hi first 100 mile finish.

Josh and Brian met through the Junk Miles Trail runners group and after spending hours on the trails together noticed they both had something in common. Both runners had a desire to do something bigger than themselves. They wanted to run for more than just a belt buckle or a medal. That's when Josh and Brian teamed up with Mission 22 to begin this story.


Josh and Brian will be running roughly 500 miles from Massachusetts National Cemetery to Arlington National Cemetery in VA for your donations. This journey will take between 10-14 days averaging 40-50 miles per day. They will start on November 11th, 2019 (Veterans Day) and will only stop to eat and sleep until they make it to Arlington, VA.
