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 7

We're 1 week away! I cannot believe I am on the edge of fulfilling a dream of mine several years in the making! THANK YOU SO MUCH.. AGAIN.. to every business and listener who has donated their time and/or money to aid our Military Vets! They need us now more than ever! 

I was in the Denton over the weekend with family... BUT... I managed to escape in the early hours to get some walking in! One question that kept coming up over the weekend... "Are you nervous?!" ... CLEARLY.. Anytime you take on something of this magnitude of course you will be slightly nervous of how it will go... BUT... Like I said in an earlier diary... I am not nervous about the physical or the outcome of the monetary goals... All I can control is actually doing the walk and hope that all else falls into place. If it falls short.... at least I did it, and maybe... just maybe I impacted one person battling PTSD or another form of depression for them to see that life is GREAT!!!
