I am Travis Mobley and I work as a Service Adviser for Caliber Collision. I found out about Lighthouse for Life from my wife who is friends with Jen Thompson.
In the beginning I just thought ‘Unfortunately that's the world we live in.” As I learned more I felt moved to get involved. I started by reading and
sharing posts on social media but I knew I could do more. With a lot of hesitation I asked Jen to come speak to a small group of guys that I work with.
Jen jumped at the chance to come share and bring awareness to my coworkers. As she spoke I noticed that there was something in me stirring that made
me want to do more and the impact on the guys at my work was obvious. Since that time Caliber Collision has become a sponsor of the upcoming 5K Glow
It means so much to me that not only are my coworkers 'mostly men' but lots people are becoming aware. I do planning on not only being involved but also
hope to continue to share and bring awareness to this horrible crime. I feel that the more awareness we can bring then the more people will stand up
for those who can’t stand for themselves. I not only challenge myself but I challenge all men in my community to do what we are put here to do. I stand
with Lighthouse For Life.
