BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
ORGANIZER: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Team Red, White and Blue is not just a charity but symbol of hope and unity. RWB is rooted in the belief that the best way to support veterans is by spending time with them, listening to them, and supporting them in personal and meaningful ways. Ultimately, the aim of Team RWB's community-building program is to bring veterans together with civilian citizens in a way that enables them to establish authentic friendships. My goal is to raise awareness and funds for military veterans and proudly represent them at the 2016 TCS New York Marathon. When I wear the Eagle I run for my dad who courageously served for 10 years in the 101st Airborne Division and did a tour in Iraq where he suffered post traumatic stress disorder and a traumatic brain injury. I have seen first hand how hard it can be for a veteran to transition into the civilian world. When I found out what Team RWB was all about and how they helped veterans through fitness I knew I had to help and be apart of it. We need to take care of our heroes.
