Why Tough Things?

Tough things are, by definition, not easy. But the things that challenge us are often the same things that enable us to grow – mentally, physically, and emotionally. The more tough things we take on in life, the more we grow as individuals and community members.

Expanding What Tough Means.

We believe the "toughest" things we encounter in life are rarely only physical feats, but often ones that also require mental and emotional strength and resiliency. Put another way: without embracing mental and emotional toughness, we often resign ourselves from taking on the truly toughest opportunities in life – and the ones from which we can grow the most, and most significantly contribute to our families and communities. We encourage you to embrace this full view of what it means to be "tough", and in doing so, encourage you to embrace the truly tough things that you are capable of.

You Matter. You are Capable. And We Will Support You.

Want to embark on something really tough? We are there to be your support, to believe in you, and to be in your corner when the going gets tough. The truth is, doing tough things often requires a team of support, and that is exactly what we will provide. What does this look like exactly? The truth is, it depends on the person! We look forward to getting to know you, to personalize and tailor how we can best support you.
