PALMYRA, Wis. (September 30, 2014)—A $5,000 donation from Standard Process Inc., manufacturer of nutritional supplements, will help the Patriot Project, a  grassroots movement to bring more awareness to the benefits chiropractic care can provide the nation’s military service men and women, active and retired, as well as their families, continue its mission. Standard Process encouraged attendees of Florida Chiropractic Association’s 2014 National Convention and Expo, held August 21 to 24, in Orlando, Florida, to Pedal for a Cause and raise money for the Patriot Project.
 
Visitors to the Standard Process booth used stationary bikes equipped with a blender powered by cycling to mix their SP Complete shake, a nutritious blend of amino acids, fatty acids, and other vitamins to support intestinal, muscular and immune health. As they pedaled, they raised money for the Patriot Project.
 
Standard Process’ mission is to help people improve the quality of their life by reaching optimal health and wellness. The company carries out its mission by providing health care professionals with safe, effective, high quality dietary supplements, as well as by becoming involved in causes which can help raise the public’s awareness about the benefits of good nutrition and chiropractic care.
 
“It was my honor to be a part of this extraordinary event,” said Charles C. DuBois, Standard Process president. “We need to provide every type of care possible to help our military be able to achieve optimal wellness.”
 
Patriot Project founder, chiropractor Timothy P. Novelli, says efforts like Standard Process’ Pedal for Cause help raise awareness that chiropractic care can address optimum function and the health of the whole person, and especially for military service men and women. “Chiropractic physicians can fill a void in the military at home and on the battlefield,” said Novelli. “Anyone who carries an 80- to 120-pound pack along with body armor and a weapon in the toxic environment of war can benefit from chiropractic's whole body approach to health.”
 
Earlier in August, DuBois, Novelli and other Project Patriot supporters were able to discuss several Patriot Project initiatives during a special Patriot Project event, “Our Heroes Don’t Wear Capes,” held in North Canton, Ohio. Topics discussed included how to get chiropractic physicians commissioned in the military similar to the commissions currently offered to other doctors, such as medical doctors.

Event attendees met Patriot Project supporters retired U.S. Navy Lts. Thomas Norris and Michael Thornton, retired Hospital Corpsman Second Class Donald Ballard, U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry, and four of the 78 living Medal of Honor recipients. The Medal of Honor is the nation’s highest military honor awarded by Congress for risk of life in combat beyond the call of duty. Also honored at the event were Patriot Project participants retired U.S. Navy Command Master Chief Hershel Davis and retired U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Shilo Harris.
