My hope is to raise awareness for mental health issues that so many people live with. My goal is to lose weight, and my hopes are that people will sponsor my weightloss. The Dollar amount is up to each person that sponsors me, but I hope they will commit to pledging something everytime I lose another 10 pounds. If someone can not donate for whatever reason, I want to challenge them to lose at least 10 pounds and get people to sponsor them and have those pledges go towards raising awareness. Too many people suffer in silence. Too many lives are lost to the illnesses. It's okay to speak out and get help. I'm hoping this will help people get the help they need. All donations will go to NAMI.
