Memorial Bench for Jonathan Morris

My beautiful son, Jonathan Morris, passed away in April after a prolonged battle with mental illness. We are placing a memorial bench by the Madison, Georgia library, which will not only commemorate my son's life, but will also become a rallying point. As a personal trainer and fitness instructor with over 30 years experience, I know all too well how important the connection between fitness and depression can be.

After this bench is placed, it will become the launch spot for 5K and other race events, the purpose of which will be to raise money for mental health awareness and suicide prevention. You can see what a gorgeous bench this truly is, and it will not only be a powerful memorial for my son, but also a place for reflection, peace and restoration beside our town library. Any amount you can commit will be an enormous help; nothing is "too small" and any support is greatly appreciated. Especially, please, share this link via social media for us--on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and anywhere else. You are all such a blessing to me.
