EVENT: Arizona Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Weekend

EVENT DATE: Jan 17, 2016

John Volken Foundation

THE STORY:

This will be my first Marathon. I've never been a runner and honestly never really enjoyed running until shortly after coming to the John Volken Academy. In the last year I've gained a new appreciation for running and exercise. I use it to stay balanced. I know that it's incredibly healthy and a fantastic natural stress reliever.


I've been a student at the Academy for a little over a year and a half. It has truly been the best thing for me. Prior to coming to Arizona I was lost. I was unsure of myself and my abilities. Life seemed difficult and unmanageable. I realized shortly after coming to Arizona that my issues and struggles in everyday life were truly brought on by my own self deception. This program is an amazing two year commitment that can benefit people from all walks of life - and it has. 


I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to be here and the ability to better myself and participate in events like the Rock n' Roll marathon weekend. I've discovered an entirely new outlook on life and I have all of our supporters and members of the foundation to thank for it!
