First off, let me say Thank You for visiting my fundraising page for the 2016 Marine Corps Marathon! My name is Nicolas Uriegas and I am stoked to have been selected to represent my fellow San Antonio RWB Brothers and Sisters at this amazing event. All the money raised will go towards helping a great organization ( Team Red White and Blue ) that has blessed me personally and helped out so many other veterans and non-veterans. Each dollar that is raised goes to Team RWB, all expenses for the trip are on me, so please help me hit my goal so that will be one monkey off my back in the process. 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 with the San Antonio, TX Chapter of Team RWB for about a 1 1/2 years now and I can say that it has been amazing and a game changer in my life. I am a former Marine, who served on active duty from 2001-2005. My time in the Marine Corps was some of the best years of my life. The Marines had a huge part in shaping me into the person that I am today, and for that, I am Honored to be a part of this amazing event. Many veterans return from deployments or leave active duty and struggle to reconnect with society and embrace their new life as a civilian. Team RWB was founded as a way to bridge the gap and help bring Civilians and Veterans together to unite as one team. By doing so, the Team is able to have a voice and make an impact on the community as it acts as a support system to provide veterans with a means to help them reconnect and develop connections with other veterans, non-veterans and their community. With your help, Team RWB can continue to serve our veterans and help them experience success through building new relationships and connections with their communities. Let me end by thanking each and everyone of you that have taken the time to read my story and have taken the time to help support a great Organization that I take pride in being a part of. Team RWB San Antonio, Tx!
