Member Since: November 2015
Motto: “Share your experiences to help and encourage others through their own challenges. And to LOVE.”
Why Did You Join Team RWB?
“I joined Team RWB because I met some Eagles at my gym (who allows Eagles to come weekly free of charge on Wednesday nights), and they pushed and motivated me, and loved me just as I was. Also because I wanted to show veterans that there are civilians out there who genuinely do support veterans.”
What has Been Your Favorite Event or Experience with Team RWB?
“Every event and outing with Team RWB is my favorite. Whether it’s a small Eagle engagement, or a large get together, a sporting event/race or a service project. I always feel loved, supported, and am able to give that same love and support when I’m with my Eagles!”
How Do You Serve Your Community?
“Paying for others’ food randomly, helping others in need, reaching out to people who are struggling to let them know of their worth, and just being a friend to people.“
What Inspires You?
“People who’ve been through some difficult challenges in life, both veteran and civilian alike, who rise up against the odds and do amazing and inspiring things, like accomplishing their goals.”
How Has Team RWB Impacted Your Life?
“Team RWB has given me a new family and a new purpose. They’ve given me people to be accountable to, and friends to love and care for. They’ve allowed me to be myself while pushing and motivating me to be a better and stronger version of myself.”
What Would You Say to Someone Who is Thinking of Joining Team RWB?
“DO IT. You will find a family in RWB, you will have friends all over the country, and you’ll never again be alone while you’re on the team!!!”
