4 HIMs put in the work together while discussing & addressing mental health. We did a Mental Battle WOD to honor Mental Health Battle Month. We worked and read aloud various mental health stats for each round of our “Dora”. We ended with 22 team merkins to remind ourselves & the bigger group of the stark reality that 22 veterans sadly take their own lives each and every day. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in this country.
We are there for each other & the entire Evanston group. We are never alone in this group that we’ve cultivated. The spirit, the resolve & the culture that we’ve created is amazing. I’m grateful everyday that I get to be a part of it. It’s my WHY. What’s yours?
