Saturday, September 17th I will be running with my good friends Ryan McKennedy and Old Glory to support the Team RWB. I am really excited to run this race with friends to support an organization that has completely changed the lives of thousands of veterans, military family members, civilians, and communities.
I am one of those military family members who has been enriched by Team RWB programs and I've been working to pay it forward ever since I put on my 1st Team RWB shirt. This Team means so much to me and I'll continue to do everything I can, everyday to bring health, people, and purpose to veterans, their family, and civilian supporters.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
About Team Red, White and Blue: Team RWB is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
Enrichment is defined as creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall wellbeing. The concept of enrichment consists of three core components—health, people, and purpose—that define a rich life.
Enrichment Equation: Enrichment = Health + People + Purpose
Health: Creating frequent opportunities for team members to connect through fitness, sports, and recreation to improve physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
People: Creating authentic connections (defined as genuine, quality, supportive relationships that generate mutual trust and accountability), reflected in an increased number of close relationships and improvements in teammates’ sense of belonging, purpose, and community engagement.
Purpose: Engaging members in meaningful team and community-based experiences such as leadership and service that, beyond physical and social activities, renew self-identity and purpose in life.
