  • Share

Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) is hosting its third annual 1776 Challenge, presented by TrueCar. The epic 18-day physical challenge, taking place June 17 – July 4, will showcase commitment to the men and women who served our country in support of our nation’s progress toward a more perfect union.

1776 Challenge participants will complete 76 -100 repetitions of prescribed exercises each day, virtually or with their local Team RWB chapters, family, and friends. Demonstrative videos hosted by Team RWB’s corporate partners will be provided to registered participants through email and the Team RWB App. Each demonstration includes modifications and seated options for participants of all abilities. 

“The 1776 Challenge is an opportunity for veterans and supporters alike to support those who served our nation through functional fitness,” said Mike Erwin, Executive Director of Team RWB. “We’re thrilled and thankful for our partners supporting the initiative this year.”

To join the challenge, veterans and civilians are invited to register at teamrwb.org/1776. Participants who complete each challenge and check-in through the app every day will be entered to earn a free 1776 Challenge patch. Random prize drawings will be offered by Team RWB’s partners for participants who check-in.
