Many people are familiar with the Wounded Warrior Project because it is such an awesome program. If you are not familiar, it is a program whose mission is "To honor and empower wounded warriors." These are the men and women who have have their lives completely changed by injuries suffered fighting for their country. I have had the honor of helping a few Wounded Warriors get back in shape and it was an awesome experience. They do not have any self pity, do not make excuses, and the ones I worked with did not regret getting hurt serving their country. These are people in the prime of their lives who have to face a reality they could have never predicted. This can be a confusing and scary time where they aren't sure what to do next. This is where the Wounded Warrior Project steps in. They help rebuild soldiers' bodies, minds, and psyches. You can do your part to help as well. This Saturday Feb 26 at McGucken Park in South Huntsville there is a 5K that sends a portion of the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project. You can register for the race by calling Stefanie Armstrong at 256-883-4735 or emailing her at If you don't want to run, but you still want to help go to and you can donate money. If you are planning on participating in the 5K, email me and let me know. We have a group going and you are more than welcome to join us.
