EXIT Real Estate Solutions and the Spirit of EXIT Helping Veterans in Tennessee

By Beth Oertel, Affiliate Broker, EXIT Real Estate Solutions, Hendersonville, TN

On Monday, April 18, 2022, EXIT Real Estate Solutions hosted a golf outing at Bluegrass Country Club in Hendersonville, TN to raise money to donate a service dog to a veteran through K9’s for Warriors. The cost to train and place a service dog is approximately $25,000, however there is no cost to the veteran to receive one. I love dogs and our vets. What better gift than a trained companion to reduce PTSD and risk of suicide?

 An estimated 20 veterans die by suicide daily. In most cases, medication and talk therapy have proven to be insufficient in helping manage PTSD symptoms. Veterans coming into the K9s for Warriors program are on an average of 10-14 prescription medications. After training with their service dog, 92% reduce or eliminate medication use. The veteran waitlist for a dog is out to 2026 so this is needed.

We worked with local businesses to get players and sponsors, and as always, this year was extremely rewarding. We raised tons of money, had the Sumner County Humane Society present with dogs to adopt, had our local law enforcement support, and had country music artist, Brad Morgan, provide a mini concert.

A portion of every transaction fee received by EXIT Realty Corp. International is applied to its charitable fund. Through the Spirit of EXIT Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Program, EXIT offices and associates can raise money for local, approved, registered charities and apply to EXIT’s head office to have those funds matched from the company’s pool of funds. Beth and the team at EXIT Real Estate Solutions raised $12,500, which EXIT’s head office was proud to match, for a total donation of $25,000 to K9’s for Warriors.  Read more about Beth and K9’s for Warriors here.
