Team RWB’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, Reserves, or National Guard. Today’s veterans face many challenges to successful reintegration into society following their experiences in a combat zone. Team RWB aims to combat these challenges by connecting veterans and their families with others (known as “advocates”) through meaningful, friendship-based relationships.  Team RWB raises awareness and support through Team RWB athlete participation in various endurance sporting events across the country.  As the Rev3 Cedar Point races coincide with the tenth anniversary of the dreadful 9-11 attacks, we couldn’t think of a better way to say “thank you” to those men and women who have, since the attacks, gone above and beyond the call of duty and sacrificed so much!

“We are beyond grateful to partner with Rev3 at the Cedar Point races this year! Team RWB is about a community of purposeful endurance athletes who see triathlon as not only a journey to break personal boundaries, but also as a way to meaningfully give back to American wounded veteran heroes. Having Rev3 become a part of  our Team RWB community clearly shows their commitment to making triathlon a truly dynamic experience that goes beyond the day of the race, and actually enables athletes to literally improve the lives of others!  Our motto is “It’s Our Turn” and we thank Rev3 for stepping up and joining us in the journey to make a difference in the lives of American veterans dealing with the wounds of war!” – Major Brittany Meeks, US Army and Team RWB Triathlon Team Captain

Rev3 is providing FIVE Full Rev and FIVE Half Rev entries for FREE to athletes willing to race for Team RWB and in exchange for athletes meeting minimum fundraising goals of $750 for the Half-Rev and $1000 for the Full Rev.

“I cannot begin to express my excitement for this partnership. Growing up in a military family and spending 7 years in the military myself, I have a unique understanding of the troubles soldiers face when returning home from a combat zone.  The entire Rev3 team is behind the Team RWB mission and hope that this partnership will only increase awareness for the problems soldiers face when reintegrating into society.  We are excited to have some real life “Heros” racing beside us in Cedar Point!”  – Charlie Patten –  Rev3
