ANNUAL WALK - Sunday, September 12, 2010 at 11:00 am Rain or Shine!
Peter Alderman was a dear friend of mine who was tragically killed on September 11th, 2001. Peter had such an amazing spirit; he could make anyone smile by just being around him. He made my "teenage" years so much fun I miss him a lot...
Please join us on Sunday September 12th, 2010 for the 2nd annual Friends of Peter C. Alderman walk. If you can't attend the walk please support me instead.
All the information about the event as well as the charity his family created in his honor is below.

For PETE'S SAKE
Peter Alderman was murdered by terrorists on September 11, 2001. He was 25 years old. To honor his memory, we chose to help people around the world who had survived terrorism and mass violence but were left unable to live productive lives because of incapacitating traumatic depression.
One billion people, a sixth of humanity, have directly experienced torture, terrorism or mass violence. Survivors suffer incapacitating PTSD
and traumatic depression. Untreated, the problem can extend into the next generation and beyond.
The solution is to train indigenous caregivers and establish culturally appropriate trauma treatment clinics in post conflict countries around the globe. PCAF can then help to return 90% of these victims to productive lives.
