WINC - For All Women Veterans Awards and Fundraiser May 4th at LC Walker Arena

Sometimes, it takes experience to see a void that needs to be filled when it comes to services needed.  Sometimes too, when someone grabs the reigns and starts out on their journey to fill that void, the reach they attain.  An idea can blossom into a world of good and a network can be built among those who have gone through the same things, and luckily for us, one of those networks was conceived, built and grown right here in Muskegon.

We've had Zaneta Adams on before, she's the founder of WINC - For All Women Veterans, and from their website, their purpose is this - "Our goal is to help bring awareness to the issues facing women veterans nationwide while providing a space where they can live, laugh, and readjust to life after service; while also identifying their tribe of women vets who have their “six”. We do that through our Military Sisterhood Initiative (in partnership with Challenge America), peer support groups, retreats, Military sexual trauma intensive therapy retreats, workshops, summits, and more."

Zaneta served proudly and was injured in the line of duty and realized that there were few places for women veterans to turn for peer support and the tools needed to heal from not only physical damage, but from some of the psychological effects anyone in the military can suffer.  The call to duty is amazing and to be respected, but it can also lead to a lifetime of struggle for some and building a safety net of humanity and others who understand what's happened and can share their experience, strength and hope.

As the group has grown, WINC now has a nationwide reach, the message spreads and the strength grows.  The gatherings, retreats, counseling and even scholarships are all paying off dividends for those involved and most of all, women who once felt isolated now know that they are not alone.  This takes a little support from all of us.  May 4th at the LC Walker Arena WINC presents the "Her2 Awards" where women and organizations who have been elemental in the mission will get their chance to shine as a way of saying thanks for all they have done.  This is an amazing affair and not only is it open to the public to attend, there's quite a few celebrities who have gotten behind this mission that will be coming to town to be part of the event.  Of course, the real celebrities are those who help others, that's what it's really about, but why not add a little sizzle to the evening if ya can?

Zaneta and I had a chance to talk down at the WINC office which is located in the Muskegon County Department of Veterans Affairs building, take a listen!

It all comes back to people, taking care of people.  There is no one better to help anyone than someone who's been down the same road, shared the same experiences and empathize and understand.  Zaneta has started a national organization right here in Muskegon.  It's amazing what she's got going and as it grows, we'll follow right along.   You can learn more about WINC by clicking on the image below to visit their website.
