For all who know me - for the last 5 years I have been working to send packages to active duty military deployed in Iraq & Afghanistan which has been an awesome journey to touch so many lives both within my work environment and the perfect strangers overseas. Through the Wells Veternas Team Member Network I heard that Wells Fargo is sponsoring climb to the summit of Mt Whitney for 15 wounded warriors to help them gain back a part of themselves that they lost.
Many have experienced horrendous injuries and trudged a long road back to recovery.....but recoverey does not end there For those who have given so much I am humbled and want to metaphorically "walk with them "on this journey so they know that they have the support they deserve,
This experience will give the wounded warriors an even bigger boost an will certainly make me feel blessed to have participated in some small way and to have been a part of this project. The expedition left early Sat Am 9/6 on their journey. You can track their progress by visiting the Soldiers to Summit website.
I began my journey last Monday starting my walks and pledging to walk 25 miles in the month of Sept. Since my start date I have logged a total of 34.8 miles and 80,874 steps as of this morning 9/9/14..... So I guess my goal has to be set higher - so I am now pledging to walk 50 miles in honor of the soldiers.
Please join me by making a donation to Soldiers to Summit and letting them know that thousands of people are behind them supporting their every step.
