Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.

Local / Consistent Exercise Activities

The bread and butter of our chapters—these events provide consistent (weekly / biweekly / monthly) opportunities for members to spend time together and engage in some type of exercise. These activities are varied by time, type and geography, and may take the form of cycling, running, functional fitness, yoga and many other group activities.

Local Races / Athletic Events

There are opportunities for members to meet and participate in local athletic events such as 5K races / mud runs / relays. These events occur at least once per quarter and are great for team-building, connection with the community and creating a sense of shared accomplishment.

Social Events

These events are often conducted in concert with a physical fitness event, such as a post-race picnic. However, they are sometimes purely social in nature, such as attending a local sporting game or gathering for a barbecue. Social events are great ways to involve families and to provide a no / low pressure access point to our Team.

Community Service Events

These events provide opportunities for members to serve their community in a way that aligns with our mission, often centered on veterans or physical fitness / athletics. These events are inclusive, team-focused, and fulfilling for all involved and may take the form of volunteering at a veteran’s homeless shelter, participating in a local Special Olympics event, or handing out water and drinks at a local race.

Eagle Engagement

Some of the most important interactions that take place in our organization, these one-on-one or small group gatherings allow veteran / community members to experience physical, social, and community activities without necessarily having to participate with a large group. Eagle Engagements are great ways to build genuine relationships with others in the community!

TEAM RWB RUCK EVENT IN DETROIT

Rivard Plaza

All ages welcome to come ruck, no RSVP just bring yourself, friends, family, pets and enemies (After a ruck you'll become closer then you would have thought!)

What is a ruck?
Ruck: A loaded relatively fast march over distance carrying a load. It is both a common military exercise and a civilian activity. A loaded march is known as a forced foot march in the US Army

Rucking is Cardio:
Cardio for people who think running sucks. Rucking for fitness will get you off the treadmill and into the world. If you want to burn up to 3X as many calories as walking, ruck instead. Your heart pumps faster during a rucking workout to get oxygen rich blood throughout your body, increasing circulation. And you can talk to your friend, who’s rucking right next to you.

How do you ruck?
You wear a backpack (or better yet a rucksack) or you don't carry anything. Then, you walk, it's a fitness thing. And you're already doing it. Hiking is rucking in the mountains and urban hiking is simply called rucking. Rucking exercises can be done at any weight.
