"Several members of my family serve and have served in the Armed Forces and I'm right behind VIA's work to support those suffering from PTSD. Using endurance adventures as a method of raising funds for this cause and for involving veterans in challenges beyond their careers with the forces offers a simple but powerful message; battle on, step by step, side by side, and you'll make it eventually."
