Podcast #16: Steve Exceen: Ride for 22 & Veteran Suicide Awareness

Posted by

Steve Exceen is the founder of Ride for 22. He joins me on The Carleena Show podcast to talk about the journey that led him to start a nonprofit that raises awareness about veteran suicide.

Steve Exceen is a Marine Corps veteran, father, and founder of Ride for 22, a nonprofit organization that seeks to:

  1. Raise awareness about veteran suicide.
  2. Serve as a living memorial for our fallen heroes.
  3. Increase public knowledge and awareness of Post Traumatic Stress.

Steve discusses the journey that led him to start Ride for 22. His organization began with three people and grew to include thousands of riders in Idaho and Oregon, riders who display a picture of someone’s loved one during the three-hour ride so families know they are not forgotten. We have a special guest on the show today. Steve’s nine year old daughter joins us at the end and says hello.
