THE IGY6; FOUNDATION WELCOMES YOU
Our mission is to provide any assistance we can to support "in-need" Veterans and First Responders as they return to a life of independence and for treatment needed to cope with the effects of PTSD and TBI.
We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization to help Veterans and First Responders find a secondary mission and advocate for suicide awareness and prevention. We have a passion for helping people and patriotism and love for our country comes together to build this foundation. 100% of donations go towards programs for our Veteran and First Responder community. Our programs and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps community members understand how to deal with a Veteran or First Responder in crisis. We also want to provide a place were Veterans and First Responders feel welcome and understood.
A 1001Mile Journey for Veterans
James Urban embarks on a 1001 mile bike ride from Melbourne, FL to Arlington National Cemetery to honor Veterans.
On Sept. 3, 2020 James began his epic bike ride to Arlington National Cemetery. James is riding to increase awareness of PTSD and to raise funds to help our Foundation with suicide prevention.
We wish to thank James, and his family, for taking on such a selfless challenge.
We also want to thank Southeast Aerospace and Maronda Homes for sponsoring James.

THE IGY6; FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
Here at The IGY6; Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to lessen the number of Veteran and First Responder suicides. We intend to provide a safe place where those in crisis can contact and speak with someone that can relate to them and provide necessary resources available. By educating the public on how to deal with Veterans and First Responders in crisis and the signs of what to look for we hope to lessen the number of Veterans and First Responders suicides. 22 a day is 22 too many!
