I am super excited to be participating in this event. I have recently joined the alternative athletics family and also the American Legion Post 117 family. These two groups along with Casey Elder have helped me realize that I can be proud of who I am as a person and as a veteran. It is important to me to give back to American Legion Post 117 and Team Red, White, and Blue.
I have been struggling with depression since returning from Iraq in 2004. The cycle of depression can be really brutal and I decided that I had enough. So I joined Post 117 to get connected back into a veteran organization. I also joined alternative athletics to get into shape, both body and mind. I believe that these two groups have helped me find a healthy, encouraging, and inspiring home. I believe in the mission of giving veterans a community by connecting us together, and promoting active healthy lifestyles. I believe that exercise has helped me get past my depression and allowed me to experience life as it should be.
Please consider donating to a great cause and two really great organizations that support our veterans. Veterans are awesome and have accomplished many great things for us. It is time that we give back to them. So please donate so that I can put my sweat equity to work.
