ELEVATE, “a company dedicated to providing the tools and resources for living a limitless life,” according to the organization’s website, recently gave the public the chance to hear from co-founder and Carbon County native Heather Bone about Bone’s cross-country solo bicycle ride to raise awareness of suicide and depression.
Bone shared with the audience both the driving factors for her decision to perform such a task as well as an overview of her journey.
Seeing both friends and family members struggle with depression and even recognizing it in herself, Bone decided to do something. Thus, Bone sold her jeep and bought a Unavega 10-speed and started her journey at San Francisco.
Traveling across numerous states and against all odds, Bone found herself witness to miracle after miracle as she asked those with whom she came in contact what they lived for.
Bone was able to compile her clips into a short film and has since even developed her own Nine Steps to Love Your Life that include such principles as having a passion and purpose, expressing gratitude and being a part of something larger than yourself, among others.
Bone is anxious to share her message with others and at the event gave attendees the chance to ponder about people in their lives and experiences they’ve had and write down what they live for as well as to share their responses with fellow participants.
Interested persons are encouraged to visit elevatelifeevents.com to learn more about Bone’s project. They may also reach Bone directly at 235-391-7081 for information about her project, to schedule a speaking event or to set up a time for individualized coaching on how to “love their life.”
