Wellness Workshop #054/055

Lyons VA - NJ

We started our afternoon working with Veterans in the secured mental health unit, helping deliver hope as they move through their fazes of recovery. There are people who care about them, and who want to help them maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle.

We moved into our fitness workshop with all the other Veterans on campus. Our opening ceremony consisted of honoring 3 Veterans who have been with us since the beginning. They are now out of the VA and and transitioning to a new life. However they came back and volunteered at our event and joined the staff. It was a humbling and energizing ceremony to have the support of these incredible men who chose us to come and give back. We had basketball scheduled but added Volleyball, an activity they have been meeting up to do on their own, doing it the Play for Your Freedom way. Together.
