Our 2018 Cover Runner Contest Finalists

Melissa Hughes of Scott Township, PA

A Navy veteran who struggles with PTSD and runs with her service dog.

In her words: “After getting out of the Navy, I battled depression and anxiety from PTSD. Running has helped me to regain confidence and focus on positive, healthy habits. My service dog, Jäger, runs with me in every race! To date, we have finished numerous 5K and 10K events, along with three half marathons, the latest being the Navy-Air Force Half in D.C. This has also helped me to get out and speak to new people and to encourage them to overcome their own disabilities.”
