    Everyone that took place in the challenge, awesome job, you are all a great inspiration to someone like myself. I would like to thank you all for telling your stories and putting yourselves out there. I have found it is not easy to let others know that we have issues that we are dealing with, personal or otherwise. The person that has inspired me the most is Gary Castagna. I find myself having the same problems that He has talked about in His story. My vote is for GARY CASTAGNA.
