Chapter: Team RWB San Antonio

Member Since: 2016

Motto: “No matter how bad you think you have it, there’s always someone who has it worse”

Why Did You Join Team RWB?

“Originally? Because I’m a veteran and someone told me I’d get a free shirt. :-)”

What has Been Your Favorite Event or Experience with Team RWB?

“Other than meeting new and wonderful people, without a doubt the 9-11 Moving Tribute where I was honored to be one of the persons carrying Old Glory from VFW Post 76 to the Alamo and back.”

How Do You Serve Your Community?

“I don’t do as much as I should or could, but I guess my main form of service would be encouraging others to be the best they can be.”

What Inspires You?

“God, family, friends.”

How Has Team RWB Impacted Your Life?

“When I first joined, it was honestly for the shirt. Now I have made so many new and wonderful friends and have much more of a social life again. Even though much of that social life is through racing, it’s always a wonderful experience to meet a new Eagle or re-connect with someone I’ve already met. I have never met a larger group of sincerely encouraging people. I cannot imagine not having this wonderful group in my life! I no longer feel alone or lonely, but truly a part of the team. Even though I walk and do not run, they are so supportive and accepting. It means more than words can adequately express.”

What Would You Say to Someone Who is Thinking of Joining Team RWB?

“You will not regret it. It will impact your life in so many, many positive ways!”
