I am hiking 10 miles with a heavy bag on my back, NEARLY NAKED, through the March Duluth temperatures and crazy weather; to raise awareness about suicide among veterans. I'm kindly asking for donations to add weight to my bag. For every $10 donated, I add 1 pound to my pack! I'm a tough girl, so lets pack it good and heavy! This weight is so important because it symbolizes the emotional weight veterans carry in the battle against combat stress. All donations go to the 23rd Veteran in Duluth who help to improve veteran transitions to a civilian life. Why would I do this, well... “My pack might get heavy. That weight on my shoulders symbolizes the weight in the battle beyond battles, and I have chosen to carry that weight. I might get tired, but aren't we all, tired of the struggles, tired of anxiety, tired of the anger, we're tired of being tired. Many of us are tired because last night we once again lied awake. I might get cold, that cold represents the bone chilling truth that while we lose Americans in combat with dignity and honor, combat stress takes even more Americans, but it takes them in vain. I will move forward, together, military, civilians, and veterans. I will put one foot in front of the other while carrying this weight of the burden for those wanting to, because we are the ones who are willing to. I will march on to bring this awareness to our community and bring a team that will help break the barriers of veteran isolation." Thank you SO much for donating to the 23rd Veteran! More than words! March on!
