Mark Your Calendars: Uncle Turtleboy And I Will Be In Taunton On September 21st To Support Veteran Suicide Prevention, And We Want You To Come Join Us

 

Loading...

What are you doing during the day on Saturday, September 21st? Grocery shopping, housework, sleeping off a bender? Perhaps apple picking in your yoga pants and Uggs while sipping your pumpkin spice latte and listing off your favorite things about Fall? That shit sounds boring. Let me tell you what you should do – Come down to The Lafayette Club in Taunton and join Uncle Turtleboy, me, and the Turtle Fam while we have a good time supporting a great cause.

 

A little bit about the event:

“This event was founded in 2015 in Taunton, Ma after the passing of Joaquin “Jack” Pereira Jr. Jack was a decorated combat veteran who served two tours of duty to Iraq (09-10)and Afghanistan (11-12). He served our country with pride and dignity. Unfortunately, he took his life on Oct 1, 2013. Post traumatic stress haunted Jack as it does many others and the purpose of this event is to bring awareness to the 22 Veterans that take their own lives everyday. Please come out and help us bring this epidemic to light, to not only remember our Brother Jack but all who have lost their battle with post traumatic stress.

All proceeds will be donated to local organizations to help support mental health for Veterans and First Responders rehabilitation.”

 

You can read more about the organizations benefiting from this event through the links below:

 

The ride starts and ends at the Lafayette Club in Taunton, 18 Lakeview Ave, Taunton, MA 02780. Tickets are $25/pp at the gate. Registration for the ride is the day of the event, 10am to 11:30am. Kick Stands Up at 12pm, Escorted by Taunton PD & Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office.

At 1:30 there will be BBQ provided by Figuredo Catering, entertainment provided by PUSH , a cash bar, Raffles – 50/50 and much more! We will be there all day so you can come, say hi, grab some turtlegear, get your book signed, and take a photo with us for our website, and enjoy a great event for an awesome cause. For every photo with a turtlerider we take, I will donate an additional dollar on top of the sponsorship donation we’ve already made for this event to help support these great local organizations who support our veterans after they’ve sacrificed so much for us.

Hope to see you there!

    I will be sleeping off a bender in my yoga pants but if Bristol promises to wear a thong, I will be there with bells on.

    The fact that none of the Turtleboy staff owns a motorcycle, have ever served or are related to anyone in the armed services but are willing to sacrifice your Sunday to set up a table and sell your awesome Turtleboy gear shows that you are the real thing.

    TB is Bristol’s uncle? It’s good to see innocent people killing innocent people,should always start with yourself. Sorry America failed you troops.

    My son suffers from ptsd from his service in the infantry front lines of Iraq. Not sure if he will ever be ok, as the stigma of mental health issues prevents him from admitting a problem or seeking help.

    I fear that eventually it will be suicide by his own hand or suicide by cop.

    Thank you, thank you for publicizing this important problem. Our veterans need and deserve this support. God bless.

      Suicide by cop? Perfect. TBS will do a 5 part expose on it.

      I’m betting UTB will be on the cops side.

    Bristol!! Thank you! Thank you, and Thank you!! Military suicide is not talked about enough! Every year we join forces with Mission 22 out in New Bedford. 22 combat vets take their lives every single day!! It would be an honor to stand in solidarity with the turtles for such an amazing and worthy cause. #22 ##suicideprevention.

    Great cause, but please, do some research into that fucking “22 Veterans a day” bullshit.

    Suicide is a terrible thing and I truly hope anyone who sees no other way to handle the situations in their life gets the help they need. I am praying for a very successful event and a rising awareness in the community of the need for more resources.

    Have to admit, I enjoy the outpouring of support, and will admit I get humbled and somber to the point of choking back tears at events geared this way. Just being around and seeing this has helped me (finally) get my shit together to talk with people and get help. So thank you, all of you.

    Great event, great cause. The struggle is real and for some, it seems like a losing battle. Help is only a phone call away, reach out before you check out.
    Not all wounds are visible.

    *A word of caution, though… A good part of the lot is on a slope so park your ride in a way that it won’t fall over and start a domino effect with the other bikes.
    If you haven’t been there before, you’ll see.

    If you can only make it on 4 wheels, no sweat. The more the merrier.

    • Paul Jones

      We will have staff assisting in the parking of bikes upon return from ride. hopefully all bikes will be parked up top
