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.

Please show your support and donate to help Jay's cause as he embarks on this courage walk July 28th-August 1st for our Wounded Warriors!
 


Jay Styles Walk Diary 6

First off..................... THANK YOU... From the bottom of my heart for every local Austin business and MIX 94.7 listener who has helped donate their time and money to a cause that I am so passionate about... DEPRESSION and more specifically PTSD! When I first birthed this idea the constant question I would hear from those close to me is... "Are you ready to open about depression?!"... Without hesitation I said "YES!" For me this is a no brainer. PTSD needs to be combated. I am so humbled to be a voice in this fight!

Right now we're 9 days away from the walk and I cannot tell you how PUMPED I am! This weekend I will be spending time with my family in Denton, TX... BUT... They're well aware that I will be up and out the door at 5am on Saturday and Sunday walking and training. Oh, and one more question that has been thrown my way... "What if something happens to you on the walk?"... My answer is simple... I WILL FINISH NO MATTER WHAT!!!!! Rain or shine... Injured or healthy... One way or another I WILL FIND A WAY!!!!!!!!!

My goal is to raise $20,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project for all that they do for vets and specifically for how they combat PTSD! To donate please click HERE!
