As many of you are now familiar, I am part of a Veterans organization called Team Red, White, and Blue. Team RWB enriches the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activities. Team RWB uses a community-based approach to successfully help reintegrating veterans by bridging the civilian-military divide.
As part of Team Red, White & Blue, NYC Military Veterans have been running in New York Road Runner races and volunteering throughout the entire year. These veterans have been participating in the 9+1 program, which guarantees them entry into the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon. Team RWB has helped these veterans reach their goals through discounts and race entry fees.
Each year, Team RWB asks its team members to help raise funds so that they able to support the next crop/group of veterans achieve there running goals for the following year.
I am asking friends and family to consider helping me in supporting this organization. I have set for myself a personal fundraising target of $500. I would greatly appreciate your help in reaching this target. I have started my fundraising off with a personal donation of $20. Your donation will bring me closer to my goal and help this organizations continued success.
