    Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization,
    is partnering with The Mission Continues and Team Red, White and Blue to host more than 170

    Run As One events around the U.S.
    On Saturday, April 7, the public is invited to join military veterans and their communities for a
    family-friendly run/walk to unite with a common purpose to empower and enrich the lives of
    veterans.
    Run As One registration is free and now open. In some communities, these events are 5K
    runs/walks but many vary by location. Visit http://donate.teamrwb.org/RAO to find additional
    details of a location near you.
    Run As One is held in honor of Clay Hunt, an original member of Team Rubicon. Hunt served in
    the U.S. Marine Corps with Team Rubicon co-founder and CEO Jake Wood, and deployed in the
    same section to both Iraq and Afghanistan with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines. Tragically, Hunt took
    his own life in March 2011 after battling PTSD and depression, but his story has inspired many
    others to find a new mission through Team Rubicon.
    Run As One is a unique engagement opportunity. Started in South Sudan in 2012, it was an
    attempt to bring previously hostile tribes together for healthy competition off the battlefield
    and has since grown into a collaborative global event. Run As One is an opportunity to establish
    and renew bonds within and among communities, and demonstrate a collective culture of
    inclusivity and camaraderie.
