A basic need

Video Posted on

What’s the most important basic need: food, shelter, good physical and mental health, clothing?

If you had to give up one, which would it be? Many would keep food, shelter and clothing, until they absolutely had to focus on the health part.

What if you didn’t have to choose?

At The PEACH Pit, we believe good mental health is as basic a need as food, that no one should have to choose between any of the basic needs.

That’s why we’re a nonprofit.

We use an equity plan, giving everyone the opportunity to have a stake in their care:

  1. How much is your monthly income?
  2. How much are your expenses?
  3. What’s left?
  4. Of the amount that’s left, how much can you afford to pay each week for services – without financial strain?

Where does the fee balance come from?

Donations, grants, gifts all help us provide affordable mental health care to our clients who may struggle with the choice.

Please consider donating to The PEACH Pit. Every penny donated helps provide a basic need: mental health care.

Fundraiser: Put some weight behind “Thank you for your service”

Posted on Updated on

Hey exercise enthusiasts, have you ever said, “Thank you for your service”? Well, here’s a chance to truly thank our Veterans and active duty servicemembers.

The Horsepower and Heroes Heavyweight Hack is your chance for a great day of working out while raising money to bring Veterans to The PEACH Pit for a free two-day retreat. All (that’s 100 percent ) of the proceeds will go to fund The PEACH Pit’s Horsepower and Heroes Retreat on Nov. 10-12, 2017.

This fundraiser will include team and individual workouts of the day, with prizes to the Top 3 teams and Top Weights with words "put some weight behind that you for your service.male and female. Registration is $160 per team (two men and one woman per team), and $45 for individual competitors. Additionally, proceeds from T-shirt sales will help fund the retreat.

Register by 10 p.m. April 30 and get 5 percent off (code HAHX).

Why are we doing this? Well, it’s our way of giving back. Our primary goal at The PEACH Pit, founded by a Veteran, is to provide affordable, low cost mental health counseling to all clients, especially our living heroes, our Veterans and servicemembers.

Sadly, a 2016 Department of Veterans Affairs report indicates that about 20 Veterans commit suicide daily. We want to do our part to prevent those deaths. To that end, The PEACH Pit is selecting Veterans from a pool of applicants for the free two-day outdoors retreat at our farm site in Georgia.

The fundraiser was the idea of The PEACH Pit board chair’s son, a CrossFit enthusiast and Army helicopter pilot.

By the way, a hack, in horse terms, is a short trail ride, generally at a leisurely pace. In nonhorse language, it’s an efficient way of achieving a goal.

You’re the heavyweights, we have the horses and the goal is to raise money. Register today for the Horsepower and Heroes Heavyweight Hack.

If you know of a Veteran interested in attending our Horsepower and Heroes Retreat, have them check out that event.

Thanks for helping us thank them.
