No Outsiderz Jeep Club is no stranger to putting on a show for a cause. Co-founder Jill Avila is proud of the support they have been able to provide for different organizations near and dear to the club's heart.
“No Outsiderz Jeep Club was founded by three like-minded women Jill Avila, Dr. Stacy Davis, and Teresa Burks. N.O. is a group of talented, strong, women from minority groups who love their jeeps and believe in the importance of community. The combined efforts of our members affords us the opportunity to be a voice for many that feel they do not have a voice while working to improve and support organizations serving within our community. The women within our organization believe it takes a collective to make an impact and we seek to do that by partnering with other organizations to assist them in meeting their goals and
mission,” Avila remarked.
For those unfamiliar, the Man22 Suicide Awareness Run is an annual event hosted by the Through Tragedy Comes Light organization. The run is a combination of a 2.22-mile run and 22 pushups. Proceeds go to nonprofits that focus on suicide prevention and awareness.
The organization's mission is to “bring people together in their time of need to honor the lives of the lost, provide a support network for the survivors, and to reduce the numbers lost because even one a day is too many.” N.O. has been involved with the organization and supported past events.
“N.O. became involved with Through Tragedy Comes Light because they were hosting a Man22 Suicide Awareness Run in which different Jeep Clubs and Car Clubs throughout Fayetteville were tasked with escorting the gold star families to Festival Park. Through Tragedy Comes Light focuses on bringing awareness to fallen veterans, and first responders as well as trying to prevent the rising numbers of suicides amongst veterans. Most of the members of N.O. have either served /or are serving in the military, work for the DOD, or have family members that have served. This movement is near and dear to our hearts, and we will continue to support the cause,” Avila said.
There are only 35 spots available, and the clock is ticking down. Those interested in participating should lock in a spot soon. This event is sure to be a packed one!
