Why Did You Join Team RWB?

“I wanted to belong to something bigger than myself. I saw a bond that brought people together, and I liked that. Running with Old Glory was the deciding factor. The pride and satisfaction of belonging to this team is still the reason I am an Eagle.”

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

“Fairbanks Midnight Sun 10k 2016. I was running with our chapter Stars and Stripes. I saw a group of spectators from a distance getting out of their chairs. As I got closer, they were saluting. I raised the flag higher as I read all their veteran themed hats. I will never forget that moment.”
