Chosen Charity: May 7, 2021
CamoFriday started as a group of family and friends who were mourning the loss of their son, brother, boyfriend, grandson and friend Mitchell, who we lost to suicide on May 26, 2017. Since Mitchell loved wearing his camo pants, we all started doing the same as a way to remember him. From there, other supporters joined and a movement to create awareness of mental illness and end the stigma associated with it was born.
The Camo Friday Team is involved in their local community to promote mental health awareness and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness.
We strive to bring mental health and those suffering from it out from their various forms of camouflage whatever way we can.
