Thank you for visiting American Odyssey Relay Run Adventure - Team Odysseus Runs for TRWB fundraising page!
We named our team Team Odysseus Runs for TRWB because we think there is a strong metaphoric relationship between Team RWB veterans, its mission –
Team Red, White & Blue’s vision is to transform the way wounded veterans are reintegrated into society when they return from combat and exit their position in the Active Duty force, Reserve or National Guard
and the symbolic importance of their journey. Just as Odysseus, the legendary Greek King of Ithaca and the hero of Homer's epic poem The Odyssey -- infamous for tricking the Trojan's by hiding in the Trojan horse, encountered numerous obstacles and trials – he is ever hopeful that he will return home to his wife and son.
At Team Red, White & Blue we feel it’s our time – our turn – to give back to these heroic Americans who have risked so much and may have a long journey ahead of them. We propose a different kind of veteran support, one that is rooted in a deep understanding and willingness to listen to veterans and their families, and aid in their reintegration into the society they fought so honorably to defend and protect. Our special community of athletes advocates and supporters (corporate, non-profit and individual) are all committed to serving those who have served our great nation. Together with wounded veterans and their families and friends, we will develop meaningful, one-on-one relationships that will have lasting meaning and impact.
We are training and will run 200 miles on their behalf and appreciate any help and support that you might give.
