BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
ORGANIZER: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT: 2016 Run as One
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2016
Five years ago the person I loved most left this earth. My heart and life was changed forever.
Clay was a Marine who served and loved his country. This event Run as One honors his life as well as brings people together to build community and support for friends and family connected to the military. It's a day to celebrate and honor loved ones who put their country first. It's a day to unit and gather strength for those who continue to struggle with depression and post traumatic stress.
Please help me support our Veterans who come home wanting to continue their service in a new way. 22 Veterans a day take their own life. It's impacted my life and this is an opportunity to create positive change by donating to these organizations who Veterans find purpose.
Thank you for your support on this cause that is dear to me.
Run As One Mega LA Event will bring together numerous community Veteran supporters and three organizations with a common focus, enriching, enabling, and empowering America's Veterans.
In honor of Marine veteran Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon who took his own life after battling PTS and depression, Team Rubicon, Team Red White and Blue, and The Mission Continues will partner to participate in the 5th annual Run as One on April 16th.

It will also be a symbol of leadership, action, and collaboration across the veterans support landscape within our local communities.
