Kerry Rock & Chris Long

  • Share

 

Kerry Rock is an Army Veteran and Team RWB member.  Chris Long is a NFL veteran and two-time Super Bowl champion.  They couldn’t be any different in stature or background, but they’re making a difference in both their local community of Charlottesville, VA and on the other side of the world in east Africa.  Having recently #ConqueredKili, we sit down with Kerry and Chris for a casual conversation covering everything from sports to community service. This is definitely an hour well-spent…enjoy the conversation!

In this episode we discuss:

• Starting a Team RWB Chapter, the challenges and the rewards

• Training for a NFL season, a 10-miler, and climbing a big mountain

• Service…taking action and giving of your most precious resource (time) to make a difference

• Delivering impact at the community level, whether that be at home or halfway across the world

• The perspective provided by poverty and summiting Mount Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft)

• The next tattoo
