We would like to thank you for supporting SANDY SHIRKEY in this year's competition. Your support enables our company to continue to contribute to Homes for Wounded Warriors and make a difference in the lives of disabled veterans and their families.

 

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

I want to encourage each of you to take it day by day and to never give up, no matter what!! Becoming fit is not a destination, but a way of life. It's a process that involves many steps. Just keep pushing on 💪

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It has saved me from depression and stress!! It helps me focus on the positives instead of the negatives. It helps me to focus on being the best I can be and to help to inspire and motivate others to help them to obtain their goals!

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

$10,000 i would donate to our local Maumee Valley Guidance Center for those experiencing depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. $5,000 would go to my boys remaining college tuition. $4,000 I would invest in the market to earn interest and apply that interest in the future to my other passion of cancer research. And of course $1,000 I would go pamper myself in celebration of winning this competition- one of my lifelong goals !!!
