A New Leash on Life: The K9s for Warriors Story - Syracuse University Screenings
The purpose of these documentary screening events is to raise awareness and destigmatize mental health issues plaguing our community. For students, there will be campus resources available at the general audience screening. Veterans Affairs Resources will be be available for our veteran community.
Secondly, this is a fundraiser to save two lives - a shelter dog and a warrior. Our goal is $20,000 or better which will enable sponsoring a service animal for a post 9/11 veteran suffering from the invisible injuries of their service.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be provided. The film will be closed captioned. For other accommodations requests, or if you have any questions, please contact Adam LeGrand at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-268-1569 one week prior to event (November 2, 2018).
When we become successfull and reach $20,000 in donations, we will have the opportunity to officially name a future service animal. Voting for the name will occur at the event. Name with the most votes wins! Suggested names: Otto, Tolley, and Shemin. (please note the photo of the puppy may not be the service animal named. Sponsoring/Naming program requires $20k in donations)
There will be a pannel discussion and Q&A prior to the film which has actual combat footacge and may be unsuitable for all viewers. Information will be available from Hendrick's Chapel, the Office of Student Support, Counseling Center, CareBridge, and Student Veterans Organization.
