2020 “Living Our Lives” Forum on Suicide Awareness & Prevention

Held at firehouses and police stations in multiple locations around Iowa


On average, 20 US soldiers take their lives every day. Veterans, Military personnel and First Responders face severe stress, PTSD and mental anguish in the process of serving their country and communities. This event will serve to raise awareness of this and aid in the detection and prevention of suicide throughout our society.

This event will have inspiring presenters including a Psychologist, a Healthy Living expert, Retrieving Freedom service dog agency, County Sheriff and a US AF Veteran with Prairie Star Residency program. Plan to attend for coping mechanisms, how to spot signs of mental illness and suicide triggers and how & where to get immediate assistance.

This will be a Facebook Live event that you can get to via the link below or by going to our American Brawn Charity Facebook page.

American Brawn HEROES Gala

The 2020 HEROES Gala was converted to a Virtual affair due to the impacts of the CORONA-19 Pandemic. A Facebook-Live presentation and auction were held. Many auction items were donated and “attendees” generously bid on the items throughout the event. This fundraiser celebrating the women and men in our military and first responder departments is held annually to respectfully pay tribute to the amazing United States of America's Veterans, Military Personnel and First Responders and includes the honorable presence of many of those we are paying tribute to.
