Team Red, White, and Blue (Team RWB) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2010 with the mission of enriching the lives of America’s Veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. The cornerstone of the Team RWB mission is to enrich Veterans’ lives. We define enrichment as “creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall well being.” Joining the team is open to any community member (Veterans, active duty military, and civilians). Local chapters organize a variety of consistent, positive activities that foster authentic relationships at the local level. Veterans connect with each other, and members of their community, through events like: weekly running groups, hiking, yoga classes, functional fitness, or even volunteering.
Team RWB is connecting veterans to each other and their communities. A significant majority of members across all categories (Veteran, Civilian, Active Duty) indicated a stronger sense of purpose, more meaningful relationships, and improved health (physical, mental, and emotional). The most important effects that our organization offers veterans are renewed purpose, sense of identity, and genuine camaraderie between members.
