As we continue to improve and elevate Project Hero, we wanted to share a #WeAreProjectHero story.
For years I struggled with major depression, PTSD, and physical injuries that led me to the brink of suicide time and again. Along came Project Hero and the 2017 California Challenge. The experience was transformative. By the end of the week, I was sleeping better. The medications I had been prescribed left me incapable of caring about anything and induced unconsciousness each night. The side effects caused my teeth to rot, my weight to skyrocket and I still had nightmares. I used the strength I had gained during the Challenge to quit my medications. Now, cycling with Project Hero allows me to sleep at night and face every day with purpose.
