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 8




First off....
 
THANK YOU for your donations! To the local Austin businesses like SockWork and its founder Mario for your sock and fiscal donations....



To Dustin owner of NorthSide Fitness in Cedar Park for his time and pationets in training me for the walk! From the bottom of my heart.... THANK YOU!!! 

 



 
 
The "Courage Walk" is quickly approaching... I cannot believe my "passion" will come to fruition in just 4 days! While clearly my passion for the Military and my own personal battle with depression are the foundation behind the “Courage Walk.” I firmly believe… in our lives we MUST step outside of our comfort zone and test the limits of our mental, physical, and soul within. The following passage has meant a great deal to me in bringing clearity to my life. I hope it helps you just the same! 


 
 
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
