We get up, drink our coffee, and the rest of the day is a seemingly endless race to answer texts, emails, phone calls, requests with deadlines, etc… We have sleep deprivation, information overload, puffy eyes, dad bods (ok, that’s just me), and overwhelming stress.
We long for a time in our lives when we thought we had stress but we really didn’t…it was when we were in high school. For many young boys and girls, playing team high school sports was the way we coped with our perception of stress.
There is a particular high school team I would like to tell you about – the state champion Dallas Harlequin Colts rugby team. They are a collection of inspirational young men who sacrifice everything for their team. Unfortunately, some of their teammates’ lives haven’t been particularly easy. Some come from financially strapped homes with one or both parents non-existent and neighborhoods that are unsafe. Others have fled their dangerous homes and even left their country because of crime and lawlessness in their homeland. At times, they don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
They all have an unshakable bond however, that helps them overcome their trials and tribulations through rugby. It gives them a sense of purpose and belonging that nothing else comes close to in comparison. They are good, courageous kids who never complain but might be lost without the companionship and camaraderie this incredibly tough sport gives them. And they need your help…
We are going to donate all of our services at Wellness Dallas in exchange for a monetary donation on Saturday, August 4th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. No appointments are necessary and all proceeds will go to the Colts which receives no financial help from any school.
In addition, any new patients will receive a free exam, x-rays, and therapy at no charge. Please tell your friends, family, and coworkers to come in and make this day a success. Let’s make a difference together in these boys’ lives.
