Please help me wrap 2018 down or start 2019 in the spirit of loving kindness and consider sponsoring my fundraising commitment for this important cause. The Courage Foundation offers innovative programs that are making a difference in the lives of veterans suffering from PTS.
I'm pledging $150 for the 2350 burpees I have done between the dates of December 9th and 31st 2018.
A little background information about this fundraiser. I met Mark Divine during a Somatic Leadership workshop near San Francisco in late November 2018. We hit it off and partnered in lessons both inside and outside the Dojo. While watching his podcast with Joe De Sena founder of the Spartan and Death Races and another with David Goggins Navy Seal, ultra marathoner and considered the hardest man on the planet I learned about the challenge on 12/09/18. From that day on I fully committed to do what I could in the time that was left. I am not in the military and have few friends and family that are so at first it was a bit hard for me to relate to this fundraising effort. Once I starting thinking about the numbers, 22 Vets a each day commit suicide it made me think about the amount of pain and depression this group must be experiencing. It's depressing enough to watch the state of affairs under the last few administrations and could hardly imagine having lost mobility, friends or seen the horrors of war due to them. I feel that I have gotten to know Mark well in a very short time and stand behind what he is a declaration to.
Peep the steez ....
Thank You for your consideration and support !
