It took courage for 300 Spartans to battle thousands of Persian invaders in 480 BC, and it takes courage for our veterans to overcome the battle wounds of PTSD. I have committed to raise $20,000 and to the challenge of rucking 235 miles along the same path as the 300 Spartans from Sparta to "The hot gates" of Thermopylae. Over the next 4 or 5 months I will be training with the help of SEALFIT coaches to prepare for this grueling challenge. I will keep you updated with blog posts and pictures during my training and "along the path of the Spartans"!
The Courage Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working with other nonprofits to offer and implement programs that improve physiological response to stress, develop emotional resiliency, and help veterans find purpose again.
Please help me reach my committed goal of $20,000, and know that your tax deductible contribution is going to help our veterans.
