Thank you for visiting the Team Red, White & Blue fundraising page for Jeanne Belliveau.
Team Red, White & Blue’s vision is to transform the way wounded veterans are reintegrated into society when they return from combat. Team RWB athletes use physical activities as a way to raise awareness and serve as ambassadors for the charity. Our fundraising efforts are essential to the organization as we generate capital that is used to directly support wounded veterans and Team RWB programs.
CHECK FOR UPDATES BEGINNING (hopefully) MAY 24!!!

A message from Jeanne:
The war in Afghanistan has taken a devastating toll on the mental health of our troops, the repercussions of which most of us haven't stopped to consider yet. I am specifically representing those who suffer from the Invisible Wounds of PTSD. We need to let our heroes know their sacrifice was not in vain.
I am going on a trip at the end of May through the states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. There will be no pit crew; no support team; no secondary driver. No plucky comic relief. It's just me, a rental car, my smelly sneakers, and a camera or two. But I promise: except for the day I fly home, I will run or hike every day at least 5K in honor of our Wounded Warriors. Rain or shine. My journey is going to cover roughly 2,500 miles in 11 days, but you can follow my daily progress as I video blog along the way! Come be my virtual support team: it's gonna be a looooong road, but we can get there together -- I believe in you!
My destinations include:
Craters of the Moon National Monument
Yellowstone National Park
Price Canyon Recreation Area
So what do you think, folks? Will you help me in my endeavor?
I believe with all my heart that our wounded veterans deserve our support; please stop for a moment and reflect upon their sacrifice for our well-being. They did it for you and me. This ain't about politics, my friends; this is about people. Real people. Men and women who need OUR help now. Let's do this small thing for them, alright? I'll even name a blister after you :)
