Team SPEARHEAD’s Red Light & Blue is coming to Richmond, VA for a weekend of Good Livin’ that you won’t forget!
The past 3 Red Light & Blue classes have been extremely successful – together they’ve raised over $23,000 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. It’s time to take the next Red Light & Blue event to the city where Patrick Henry delivered his famous “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” speech – Richmond, Virginia, a city filled with history and deep roots in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War!
Red Light & Blue 004 will raise money for a great Richmond-based organization: Veterans and Athletes United
What is Veterans and Atheletes United? VAU is an all-volunteer veterans organization that was founded and is operated by combat veterans (with disabilities) and caring professionsls. They are dedicated to honoring the veterans of the Global War on Terror and taking care of those who bare the wounds from it. VAU empowers severely wounded, injured, and ill veterans of all wars and their families to overcome those challenges. Their Retreat provides severely disable veterans and their families the opportunity for rest and relaxation. They also sponsor athletic recreational opportunities to veterans through a series of service partnerships to empower veterans to achieve athletic goals beyond their disabilities. For more information, please visit www.vetsau.com.
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.
