For our youth that are often challenged with levels of low self-esteem this race presented an opportunity to push themselves. I wish you could see their finish line photo; it looked like they’d won the greatest warrior challenge of all time.
The boys were clearly out of their comfort zone, yet by starting and finishing this muddy adventure they experienced an opportunity to gain greater self-esteem. It took tenacity to finish. Before the race they had all but convinced themselves that they would never finish. But they did and we’re all proud.
That’s what we do at Patrick Henry Boys & Girls Homes; we lovingly support and positively push in order that each of our youth achieves a higher level of self-esteem.
