Eddie O'Hara—one of the veterans who attended Team RWB's second annual Triathlon camp in Austin, Texas—shares his personal story of his involvement with Team RWB.
Struggling with many factors once back in civilian life, O'Hara is a leading example of how exercise and community engagement may be used as an outlet to help overcome obstacles.
"When you get out of the Military, the number one thing that you miss is the brotherhood that you had with all your fellow friends that you met during your serivce. Ever since I joined Team RWB, I have that again."
The Triathlon camp is one of the various different athletic events created by Team RWB, aligning with their mission to enrich the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
Veteran Athletic Camps are tremendous opportunities for veterans to learn a new sport/activity that they can take home to their local chapter. Led and coached by world-class athletes/renowned experts, the camps are designed to inspire veterans to commit to their own health and fitness.
The week following the camp O'Hara participated and finished in his first Triathlon.
