Jay Styles Courage Walk
July 28th-August 1st, 2014

Help support Mix 94.7's Jay Styles in his  courage walk to raise money for Wounded Warriors and soldiers battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Jay will be walking 20 miles a day for 5 days totaling 100 miles July 28th-August 1st!  He hopes to raise at least $20,000! 

Why $20,000? Below are two quick facts in regards to PTSD.

- The cost to train 1 service dog is $20,000.
- The cost-per-case basis, the estimated two-year cost for each case of PTSD alone ranges from $5,900 to $10,300; for each case of major depression alone, from $15,460 to $25,760; and for each case of comorbid PTSD and major depression, from $12,430 to $16,890.

Jay Styles Walk Diary 3

I have been reading articles all morning about Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is not a trendy phenomenon that has just come to light. PTSD has impacted our WWII and Vietnam vets just the same. However, scientists are predicting a "flood" of PTSD cases in the months and years to come. More alarming and sad is that the VA and the rest of the Government are not ready for this "flood!" To read more on this please click HERE

That is why the "Courage Walk" in partenership with the Wounded Warrior Project is so vital! Please HELP us combat this awful epedimic and ensure at least a better future for our men and women in the military! Click HERE to donate today! 

Walking 20 miles a day for 5 straight days will be no "walk in the park!' That is why the generosity of local businesses in around Austin helping me better ensure I get through the walk safely has been so important. I have to thank Ralph Tilney and Troy Halvorson over at Foot Solutions of Austin, Inc for donating foot insoles to help make the walk easier on my feet. 
Make it a great day, you deserve it! -- Jay Styles
