Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Brittany Dugan and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Never give up! It's ok to struggle and to feel weak. But you only get stronger if you try. It only takes a day at a time. Progress is your biggest fan!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It keeps me going for my kids! I love living an active lifestyle for them. I want to be healthy so I can be involved in my children's life and push them to succeed. Having 3 daughters I want to teach them positive self encouragement. Women have it hard enough and I have myself been a victim of cyber bullying and hope they never endure that but also never let unkind words change how they look at themselves. Being involved in fitness helped me through that and has been very positive on me after.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I would like to build a program to help young girls and women promote healthy lifestyles to build positive self love. My blended family is very important to me and with having our 4 children full time we both want the best life for them. They have witnessed their outside parents struggle with addiction and it has been trying but my husband and I have been here through out it all. I would love to put the money also towards a bigger home for our children because they definitely deserve it.
