Team RWB and TrueCar Military host Open Road Challenge
Cars aren’t just a means of transportation, they not only help us escape the day-to-day, they allow us stay active and connected to the world around us.
This August, TrueCar and Team RWB are teaming up to host an Open Road Challenge encouraging veterans and supporters to get active, take on new local adventures, and stay connected virtually.
While many of our usual summer destinations and activities are on hold, we want our nation’s veterans to remember that life is an open road and there are still ways to improve health and wellness.
If you’re up for the challenge, join us every Saturday in August to complete an Open Road Challenge available in the Team RWB App. Don’t forget to join in the conversation and share your progress with #OpenRoadChallenge for a chance to win TrueCar and Team RWB swag.
