A friend nominated me for the "22 Pushups for 22 Days" challenge because every day 22 US Veterans commit suicide (on average). Although I've never had a deep connection to Veteran causes, that really struck a chord with me, so I asked if there was a group this was supporting so I could make a modest donation. (He said no.)
The next day, I got an email from Equinox telling me about this ride, and it semed more than coincidental. So I posted on Facebook, and the next thing I knew, this team was born!
I'm so glad we can do a little more than pushups to help the people who return from service and feel like they don't have a way out. The Heroes Project provides resources and healthcare for our veterans, and I am so proud we can support their work in this small way.
