Thorvalson said, “Coming together for an event like this
was really exciting.”
The Turtle Survival Alliance not only wanted to engage
citizens in cleaning up the beachfront but also bring
awareness “to our human impact on ecosystems as
a whole,” said TSA spokesperson Emily Kiefner. That
includes the habitats of both ocean-based and freshwater-
based turtles.
“The amount of waste products we retrieved from a small
section of beachfront during the one-hour cleanup can be
viewed as a microcosm depicting our human impact on all
the ecosystems around us,” Kiefner said.
Party for the Planet on Isle of Palms involved the
following conservation organizations:
South Carolina Aquarium leads the way in connecting
people with water, wildlife and wild places with initiatives

A VA soldier in need, a VA mentor opportunity

The young man volunteered for The Armed Services of the United
States. In his case, Army. He had his reasons, like adventure, “Be All
That You Can Be,” and not really knowing what else he wanted to do.
So, he served his country. Went to war in the Middle East and
became a good soldier. In fact, a damn good soldier. But there was
the daily stress of someone trying to kill him. A sniper. A roadside
bomb. A suicide bomber. And it took its toll on him.
He finally came home...physically in one piece but not the same
man he had been before in many ways. Mentally, he was pretty
strung out, “wound tight”, nerves on edge. He couldn't relate to the
sameness of an every day routine. He found jobs...lots of them, but it
was hard to tolerate “civilians.”
Likewise, he couldn't relate to his family nor they to him any longer
and he found himself living in shelters or churches or wherever
he could get out of the rain and the cold. And he found drugs and
petty larceny to afford the drugs, and physical attacks on people
who annoyed him. And he wound up in court...which is the good
news. With the new Veterans Treatment Court it didn't mean he was
automatically headed for jail.
Newly established under the Charleston County Probate Court, the
Veterans Treatment Court is voluntary for “Adults with prior military
service...who have been charged with one or more criminal offenses
in Charleston County....who are struggling with addiction, mental
illness and/or trauma-related disorders such as PTSD.”
As Alcoholics Anonymous relies on sponsorship, the court relies on
Veteran Mentors...“Veterans or qualified active duty personnel of the
U.S. Armed Forces who volunteer their time to assist the court.” The
Island Eye reaches many Veterans on Sullivan’s Island, the Isle Of
Palms and Mount Pleasant, so this call is just for you. And, it doesn’t
get into all the details that you’ll find at
departments/probate/veterans-treatment-court or by contacting the
Veterans Treatment Court coordinator at 843.958.5186.
Maybe you're not through serving, or maybe you know a veteran
who needs help.

Local rider in Great Cycle Challenge



isa Giuliani, a resident of Charleston, is planning to ride
300 miles and raise $2,500 during the month of June for
Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) in support of its
5th annual Great Cycle Challenge USA.
Great Cycle Challenge USA encourages cyclists across
the United States to challenge themselves and set their own
personal riding goal throughout June to fight kids' cancer.
Riders fundraise to save lives and give kids the brighter future
they deserve.
Founded in 2015, Great Cycle Challenge USA has grown to
become one of the biggest cycling events in the country. In just
four years, over 153,000 riders from 50 states have ridden 12
million miles, raising more than $16 million for research and
the development of better treatments and cures for childhood
cancer. This year, CCRF hopes more than 50,000 riders will
help it raise $8.2 million.
“Over 15,000 American children are diagnosed with cancer
every year and, sadly, 38 children die every week,” said John
Hallberg, Chief Executive Officer at Children’s Cancer Research
Fund. “Thanks to riders like Lisa, we’re fueling groundbreaking
research to save lives and give kids the brighter future they
“This is the fourth time I have participated in Great Cycle
Challenge,” said Giuliani. “During those years, I rode 774 miles
and raised $5,330.28. This year, I am aiming to raise $2,500
and ride 300 miles.”
