Mike Erwin's Team RWB fundraising page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Donating through this website is simple, fast and 100% secure.
I am a big believer in the power of physical fitness to change lives. Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) is harnessing this power to bring veterans together with members of their community; to create new bonds and to help them transition from service member to civilian.
I am specifically fundraising for the Team RWB Veteran Ambassador program. We are creating a nationwide movement that emphasizes the power of physical activity to help veterans reintegrate and live healthy lives. Every $20 donation overs all the costs to put a high quality, New Balance Team RWB athletic shirt on the back of a veteran. This shirt gives each veteran "a new team" to be a part of when they leave the military---and connects them to a community of fellow Americans who will help them stay physically & socially active. My goal is to raise enough money to get 1,250 veterans into a Team RWB shirt this year.
This year, I have chosen to base my fundraising effort around the idea of perseverance. Between July 30th and August 2nd---over a period of 100 hours---I am going to run 100 miles. Adding to this challenge, I am going to cover these miles in four different cities: a marathon in Chicago on Tuesday, 26.2 miles in Phoenix on Wednesday, a marathon in Los Angeles on Thursday and the final 26.2 miles in Washington, DC, on Friday night. Thank you for your consideration and support.
"IT'S OUR TURN!"
