The mission of Team RWB (Red, White and Blue), is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Results of the teams’ success have now been proven.
Officials from Syracuse Institute for Veterans and Military Families recently released its new study on Team RWB, the 6-year old outreach organization whose stated goal is to enrich veterans lives. More than 270,000 individuals took part in the group events last year. 81% said their involvement made them feel more satisfied with their lives, 64% said it helped them maintain a healthier weight, 53% said it helped them connect to their civilian peers and 70% said it helped them build a better network of professional contacts.
There are over 350 members of Team RWB in Grand Rapids that are benefitting in these same ways. RWB is like our second family!
