Hello Everyone: My name is Guadalupe "Lupe" Hernandez and a proud member/leader of the Team RWB Houston Chapter. I am motivated, excited, ecstatic, proud, and honored to be be running the Marine Corps Marathon this year in raising money for Team Red, White, and Blue. What is Team RWB? It is a veteran organization that enriches lives of American veterans by connecting them to the communtiy through physical and social activities. As a Marine Corps Veteran (1998-2004) as a Supply Admin and Marine Security Guard I had family and the comaraderie was always there. After seperating from the Corps I felt an emptiness until I got connected to Team RWB. They are my family!! It has been a difficult year for me and they have been there for me not just through physical and social activities but I can ALWAYS count on anyone on the team if I need to talk about anything. I love my RWB family!! Since joining Team RWB I have done my 1st marathon (2015 MCM), several halfs, several 10ks, 1st triathlon, 1st duathlon, soon first 50 miler and 100 miler, now a trail runner, and next year hoping to do my 1st half Ironman. Yup that is how much of an impact Team RWB has been in my life!! Oh and let me also mention that they have taken in my little ones as family as well (Little Eagles) and have tremendously supported my daughter in her triathlons. I have had several RWB members who have been my mentors and I can assure you that my life has been impacted with this veteran organization. I am looking forward to running along others veterans and civilians (cause we can't forget about our biggest supporters) at the 41st Marine Corps Marathon. Please help me raise funds for this awesome veteran organization that impacted many veteran and civilan lives. Thank You for reading and the support.
I will be running to honor Marine Corps Sgt Garcia a 22 too many. I will run my heart out for this Marine and all other 22 too many. I will not let them down.
