In honor of Marine veteran Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon who took his own life after battling PTSD and depression, Team Rubicon, Team Red White and Blue, and The Mission Continues will partner to participate in the 6th annual Run as One on April 1st 2017. The event will not only serve as the celebration of a continued partnership, but will be a symbol of leadership, action, and collaboration across the veterans support landscape.
Why We Do What We Do (Team Red, White and Blue)
Our organizations understand the challenges associated with returning home from war. Combat affects every veteran. While some wounds are visible, many are not. Guilt, survivor’s remorse, post-traumatic stress, and anxiety are all too common among those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. We acknowledge and accept these challenges.
We Are Doing Something About It (Team Red, White and Blue)
Our teams are a collection of Doers. We have built programs that allow veterans to proactively combat their challenges with a heavy dose of purpose, camaraderie, and accomplishment. Veterans are an incredibly strong population and when connected to their community will do amazing things. The solution is within all of us.
What To Wear :
Wear your blue The Mission Continues shirts and running or walking attire.
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
