Barney Smith's father, Edward Smith III, was an Alameda Fire Fighter for 30 years.

Barney lost his father to suicide on January 4, 2019.

In this country, we also lose 22 veterans to suicide every day.

Barney planned this event in honor and memory of his dad, and all first responders and veterans. The event will cover 50 Kilometers, which was the daily commute from Ed's house to the fire station where he worked. It will start at 8:00 AM on January 3rd, 2021. The actual route will be walked by a small group of close friends and arrive at the fire station at 8:00 AM, January 4th. This represents the 24-hour shift of firefighters.

In order to limit exposure to COVID, this will be a virtual event for everyone else this year, but all participants are encouraged, but not required, to walk or run the complete distance. We will keep the reporting window open long enough so that you may take 22 days to complete the distance. This is a commitment of 1.42 miles a day.

To commemorate this event and acknowledge the effort you all make, you may choose one of the two awards given to all registrants:
2 Inch bright gold finish 5 color 2-sided Challenge Coin
3.5 Inch bright gold finish 4 color medal with full color ribbon


We are grateful for the participation of representatives from TeamRWB and 22 and You.

A personal note from Barney:
Dad was a big supporter of whatever I did. I love him and miss him daily. I am doing this for suicide awareness for people who think there is no help.
All proceeds will be given to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Please consider making an additional donation for this cause.

Thank you,
Barney Smith
