THE STORY:

I normally don't like to ask for donations but our team fundraising has hit a wall and we are about $1000 away from our goal. So for that reason and because I believe Team RWB is the most influential veterans service non-profit out there, I've decided to put this fundraising campaign out to all my Facebook friends and acquitances.  I hope that you can see the value in Team RWB and what it is doing on a local level to transform the way veterans reintegrate back into their communites once they leave military service. In almost 48 hours myself and 11 other members from Team RWB Salt Lake City will take on legs 17 and 18 of the relay, logging 130 miles of the over 3800 miles Old Glory will travel across the country. Below is some more info and stats on Team RWB or you can check out our website, www.teamrwb.org for more information.  

Thank you all for your consideration!

Make an Investment in Veterans


One of the key reasons behind the development of the Old Glory Coast to Coast Relay is to raise awareness of the challenges facing our veterans. We also seek to raise funds for Team RWB programs.

We know that community and exercise are powerful and proactive ways to address the root causes of many veteran challenges. By preventing isolation, depression, and anxiety, we greatly reduce the likelihood that a veteran will have to deal with dependence, joblessness, or homelessness.

Over the past 12 months we have grown from 8 to 71 chapters across the country. These chapters held over 5,400 events, which led to more than 60,000 personal, veteran interactions. This authentic, local approach is making a difference. In a 6-month follow-up survey, more than 80% of veterans reported feeling connected to their community, more than 18% reported decreased use of alcohol, and 15% reported decreased use of tobacco since joining Team RWB.

Our mission and programs are resonating with veterans everywhere. We want to continue this growth, to serve more veterans in more communities…and we need your help.
An investment of only $10 per month will support a local veteran’s participation in our chapter program for an entire year! At $50 per month, you can fully support a veteran’s attendance at one of our premier Athletic and Leadership Camps. We are a lean organization, supporting over 35,000 members with only 9 employees, and deliver almost 90% of all proceeds directly to our programs.
