Ron Morris: Hey! Look where I am, in my garage. No, I'm not. I'm here to talk to you guys today about first responders, EMT, police, anybody who is a volunteer or paid professional.
I'm looking to create a place for them to train, be trained, and be helped in the most critical ways, which is mind, body, spirit. To create a Zen place, a physical place, and a healthful place, whether it's a diet, or getting in shape to life the dummies that all these guys have to train with, or carrying around a hundred pounds of gear, or the stress of being a cop or an EMT and dealing with stuff all the time.
What we're going to do is try and develop a place where I don't have to worry about how to raise some funds to create a safe haven for first responders to come to and not worry about if they have an extra $100 or $200 to get fixed or trained. There's so many opportunities out there to help people, and because of lawyers, insurance, and all this nonsense, there is limitations on everything.
What I'm seeking to do is a non‑denominational lab. I don't care what area you're from, so long as it's the St. Croix Valley, Hudson, Pepin, doesn't matter. You can come. You can get trained. You can get programmed to eat right, to think right, to detox your body, to detox your mind, so that you're not overloading your system, your brain, or your body.
There is no place that exists like this. Right now, I've been working at St. Joe's. I've been working for free. I can only work for free so long, so I'm looking to develop some sort of place, a lab, a real home for these guys and guys like them, to be helped by a real professional like me.
There will be more on this later, but this is where we're going to start, so there you go. Thanks.
