Sept 15th Update to My Ironman Journey for Mental Health!
September 15, 2016
BENEFITING: The Herren Project
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2016
Thank you for helping The Herren Project provide assistance for those taking the first steps toward overall Mental Health Awareness and recovery through treatment navigation, educational programs and mentoring resources. Their efforts are near and dear to my heart, as I was affected by suicide, addiction, mental illness and violence in my childhood. I suffer from anxiety and PTSD as a result. 10 years ago, I started the sport of Triathlon as a positive coping mechanism for my Recovery. I will be participating at this year's IMNC race Oct. 22nd in Wilmington, NC. I want to raise money to continue helping others affected gain back their hope, healing, and health through The Herren Project.
This is no easy task for me, as I also have lupus and at 54, this is not easy on me physcially. But every hour I train, every mile I bike and run - I think of those who need to Talk and find Recovery, I do this for YOU, and for ME!
Join me in my efforts to get to the Finish line to show others this is what Recovery can Bring - Dreams that can come true!
