In honor of Marine veteran Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon who took his own life after battling PTS and depression, Team Rubicon, Team Red White and Blue, and The Mission Continues will partner to participate in the 5th annual Run as One on April 16th 2016. The event will not only serve as the celebration of a continued partnership, but will be a symbol of leadership, action, and collaboration across the veterans support landscape.
Why We Do What We Do
Our organizations understand the challenges associated with returning home from war. Combat affects every veteran. While some wounds are visible, many are not. Guilt, survivor’s remorse, post-traumatic stress, and anxiety are all too common among those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. We acknowledge and accept these challenges.
We Are Doing Something About It
Our teams are a collection of Doers. We have built programs that allow veterans to proactively combat their challenges with a heavy dose of purpose, camaraderie, and accomplishment. Veterans are an incredibly strong population and when connected to their community will do amazing things. The solution is within all of us.
