The first $30,000 was raised from my DC Ruck for PTSD Awareness month!!
Then $2064 was raised during the 22 Push-Up Challenge!!
Now let's get from $32,000 to $50,000!!


I'm a disabled veteran aspiring to raise money and awareness for fellow service men and women who suffer with Post Tramatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  On June 2, 2016, I rucked for three days 237 miles from the Vietnam Veterans  Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.  I'm at it again!! We need to keep funding treatment for our veterans. On September 16th, I will start my first NJ Shore Walk.

Money raised will help start a nonprofit fund to send veterans to The Refuge, an inpatient facility located in Ocklawaha, Florida that specializes in treating individuals who have suffered from PTSD and/or complex trauma.  

I will be rucking along Ocean Avenue and the Boardwalk,when I can from Sandy Hook to Island Beach State Park. I'll be stopping at various points throughout to carry on the 22 push-up challenge. The statistic of 22 veteran suicides a day due to PTSD, and the related symptoms of this disease, is staggering and each push-up is in honor of those lives lost.

Love the idea of trecking the NJ shore route and doing 22 push ups in each town..... wish I could join you, but I live too far south of your route. If you decide to go further south in NJ, please post an update! Thank you for your dedication
