Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical fitness and social activities. Team RWB is changing the way that transitioning veterans interact in their community by delivering local, consistent and inclusive opportunities for healthy engagement and increased mental and physical wellness.

The River Ellis Foundation is a local nonprofit that helps families in the midst of unexpected tragedy in meaningful ways. With a typical response time of less than 24 hours, they help bridge the gap by providing short-term, immediate financial assistance  for families until a longer-term solution can be put into place. From the family who lost everything in a fire to the baby given only months to live to the father of 5 who died unexpectedly; nobody can be prepared for tragedy, and nobody should have to do it alone. That’s why the mission of The River Ellis Foundation is to Give A Sunrise to those in the midst of their darkest hour. 100% of money raised stays in Hampton Roads, helping our local community shine a little brighter. 

The River Ellis Foundation is excited to partner with J&A Racing for their annual Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend 2024. Make your miles count by joining the very first River’s Runners team!
