BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the 2016 Marine Corps Marathon! My name is Johnny Freedom and I am super excited to have been selected to represent Team RWB for this infamous marathon! I have chosen to raise money for a great organization that has blessed me and other veterans and non-veterans called Team RWB. I am paying my own expenses, so the all the money benefits Team RWB!
For those of you who don't know, Team RWB is an organization that's mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
I have been a member of Team RWB Wichita, Kansas for over 2 years and it has been a great experience for me. I am a former Marine, who served on active duty and the reserves. Team RWB has been an awesome way for me to connect with other veterans, patriots, and the community through a variety of athletic events and other team training activities. I have run several 5k road races, done training runs, rucksack (aka: backback with weight) training, and even YOGA with Team RWB Wichita.
Many veterans return from deployments or leave active service and struggle to reconnect with society and embrace a lifestyle as a civilian. Team RWB was founded as a bridge and support system to provide these veterans with a conduit to help them reconnect and develop connections with veterans, non-veterans and their community.
With your financial support, Team RWB can continue to serve our veterans and help them experience success through building new relationships and connections with their communities. Thanks for your support!
