The Story: The TCS New York City Marathon has become one of the world's biggest and most popular marathons, as participants run through all five boroughs of New York City (Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan & The Bronx) for 26.2 glorious miles. Team RWB Eagles & Supporters from all across the country will be participating in this year's Marathon to not only feel the glory of crossing the finish line, but to raise awareness and funds for military veterans through Team Red, White & Blue.
Team RWB enriches the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical & social activities. Visit TeamRWB.org for more info or to get involved.
I set a personal goal for myself this year as this will be my first full marathon to complete, however it will also mean being able to run and raise awareness for active duty, military veterans and their communities. I've been fortunate to be a part of Team RWB's Los Angeles Chapter and have met amazing individuals all with different stories and backgrounds and have seen the results that Team RWB not only has on veterans but also civilians. I grew up as a military dependent and within the military community which makes this even more personal:) I will run for Ed, Dayne, Steve, Mike Sr., Mike Jr., Johnny, Juan, Rod, Mike R., Larry, Adam T., Jay, Josue, Irving Sr., GM Cummings, Narciso, Rudy, Zip, Star, Pearl, Diane, Jose R., Colin, Tony, Perry, Duty's and many more.....
