BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Feb 11, 2017
UPDATED POST: Alright so life got in the way (stupid job...) and I couldn't train like I needed to in order to do the 50 mile race and I only did the 50km race. So I'm now signed up for a 50 mile race on February 11th 2017 that I will either finish or they'll carry me off the course. Please read more below about Team RWB and why you should donate. They make a measurable difference in the world and many veterans wouldn't be here anymore without them.
ORGINAL POST: I'm running an Ultra-marathon which is probably the most selfish thing somebody can do. It's months of training and 12+ hours of racing just to see if I can shuffle my feet for 50 miles. So out of guilt and a bit of philanthropic drive I've decided to use this event to raise money for Team RWB (Red, White, and Blue). Team RWB enriches the lives of Veterans through building a community of currently and formerly serving members of the military. They have Chapters through out the country and each Chapter has regular events from workouts to hangouts. This organization works to provide Veterans of all types with the support they need during and after service.
