Team SPEARHEAD’s Red Light & Blue is coming to Charlotte, NC for a weekend of Good Livin’ that you won’t forget!
Red Light & Blue classes 001 and 002 have been highly successful. Each event has raised over $5,000 to benefit veterans in our own communities, educated hundreds of civilians about the realities of what our military and veterans face, and contributed to bridging the gap between the civilian and military communities. After the successes of these events, it’s time to take it up a notch. Red Light & Blue 003 will benefit the Charlotte Bridge Home, our favorite local organization that works with veterans in the Charlotte area.
What is the Charlotte Bridge Home? The CBH is an organization that aims to do primarily one thing, and that is to connect veterans. Connect them to to employers, to government resources, to each other, and to the community. The CBH provides a starting point for veterans that are new to Charlotte, and helps them transition into civilian life in a city that has a low military population. For more information, please visit www.charlottebridgehome.org
The goal of Red, Light, & Blue is to connect the civilian and military communities, and what better way to connect veterans to the community than to bring a ton of Americans together for a 6 hour dose of good livin’ brought on by GORUCK’s top cadre? And how better to finish off the good livin’ than with ACRT and a cook out.
