BENEFITING: International OCD Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2016
On June 4, 2016 there will be four walks across the country benefiting the International OCD Foundation. I am not located near one of those cities, so instead I am hosting my own virtual 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk here in Columbus! On Sunday, June 5th, I will be walking 20,000 steps (roughly 8 miles) of my own in support of this charity.
There are several ways to support me in my walk! First, if you are local, I would love for you to walk with me!!! Click the register button on the right and join my team (Never Walk Alone) to get signed up. I will be walking at the Sunny 95 Park loop in Upper Arlington. On the 5th, walk the 1/2 mile loop with me as many times as you would like, or just show up to cheer me on! If you're not local, you can still register and walk in your own city in support of the IOCDF, whatever distance you desire. If you would prefer not to walk but still want to financially support this cause, any donation would be sincerely appreciated. You don't have to register to donate, just click the donate button to the right. And if you're looking for other ways to help out, there are tons! Pray for this event! Show up and give me a hug! Spread the word about my walk to your friends, or spread the word about the IOCDF and the awesome work they do for those suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Wear an OCD Advocate band to show your support (ask me how to get one!). Any means of support at all is greatly and sincerely appreciated.
This is a cause extremely close to my heart as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder not only effects several members of my family but it is also a disorder that has hugely impacted my own life. My diagnosis was a weight lifted from my shoulders and a new light in the darkness and my hope is that with this walk I can support an organization that brings that light to thousands of people every year. There is hope and there are answers and there is support available. You don't have to struggle and suffer in silence. No one has to walk alone.
