This is my 3rd straight year participating in the Climb for Heroes event. The Heroes Project is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. I have several friends, and family members who have served or are serving and I couldn't possibly thank them enough for their service. The Heroes Project gives something back to those who have given so much in their service and it is both an honor and a privilege to be participating in this event again. "The Heroes Project’s mission is to organize training and expedition programs for wounded marines, soldiers and veterans. These expeditions challenge the severely wounded to redefine their personal limits post injury. The Heroes Project inspires our injured military veterans to find purpose, both physically and mentally, and ignites others to do the same." Please join me in supporting this awesome cause by sponsoring me for the 2017 hike. This year will be my most challenging yet, having just donated a kidney to my dad in February, but I will give it my all because our heroes give their all each and every day.
