The Armed Forces Alumni Association (AFAA) at Tuck and Team Red White and Blue (RWB) will be holding an inaugural “Upper Valley Serves 5K/10K” footrace on 27 April at which they hope to see over 300 participants running.
Team RWB connects veterans and their neighbors through physical fitness and social activities. For veterans, physical activity helps maintain the structure and rhythm to daily life we became accustomed to during our active duty service, bolsters self-esteem, reinforces healthy lifestyle choices, and develops relationships with neighbors who share similar interests.
The Armed Forces Alumni Association (AFAA) at Tuck has a history of assisting veterans to transition into the Dartmouth community and the corporate world. Our predecessors created a community that helped veterans create new connections while retaining an identity of service.
Troop 45 will help the efforts by helping by working at the race timing desk. They will be responsible for tracking the times of runners as they cross the finish line.
This is an excellent for any scout to help at a inaugural community event, as well as contributing to service hours for advancement requirements.
