Team RWB defines enrichment as creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall well-being. The concept of enrichment consists of three core components—health, people, and purpose—that comprise a rich life.
- Health: Creating frequent opportunities for team members to connect through fitness, sports, and recreation to improve physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
- People: Creating authentic connections (defined as genuine, quality, supportive relationships that generate mutual trust and accountability), reflected in an increased number of close relationships and improvements in teammates’ sense of belonging, purpose, and community engagement.
- Purpose: Engaging members in meaningful team and community-based experiences such as leadership and service that, beyond physical and social activities, renew self-identity and purpose in life.
We accomplish our mission via our two core programs: our Chapter and Community Program and our Eagle Leadership Development Program.
Ruck to Remember has again selected Team RWB for one of its 2019 Mission Charity Partners.
Founded in 2010 the Ruck to Remember’s mission is to empower our nation’s heroes, coming home carrying with them the wounds of war, while forever HONORING & REMEMBERING those heroes that sacrificed all.
The Ruck to Remember is an annual event that occurs over Memorial Day weekend with two events (distances) that make up our Mission to Honor and Remember what Memorial Day weekend is about.
60 to 60
Is an intense, grueling 60 mile team hike, done with a hiking backpack / military "Ruck" sack and all your required gear (est. 30 lbs) over steep rugged terrain and down through the historic WO&D Trail of Northern Virginia as the mission continues on, moving to the Iwo Jima War Memorial to link up with the Final Miles Team In all completing a 60 mile journey of Remembrance.
The Final Miles
Is the critical 6 mile movement, beginning at the Iwo Jima War Memorial, Memorial Day morning, then down through the National War Memorials. The teams move as a team, in formation, representing the strong force of our Military and camaraderie of those who have served. The movement itself is the show of force that serves to Honor and Remember all those that sacrificed all, as the movement moves over Memorial Bridge and into Arlington National Cemetery.
