BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT: Old Glory Relay 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 11, 2016
It seems that everywhere I go sporting the Eagle, I get solicited for information about Team RWB. “What is Team RWB?”, “What do you do?”, “What separates you from ALL the other “veteran” organizations?" "What is Old Glory Relay?"...
Team RWB’s grounding principle; our foundation, is summed up in our mission, “To enrich the lives of America’s veterans by CONNECTING them to their community through physical and social activity”. My answer for those questions above, and the very aim I attempt to embody is this idea of “connected”. I see it as Brene Brown does,
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
This idea is what heals wounds and bridges divides. Not only in the veteran community, but in our social environments as well. This is what Team RWB is to me, and it is what we do every day, with every interaction! In the end, the only thing in the world worth fighting for, trying so hard for and existing for… is each other.
