BHG Continues Support of Team RWB and Wounded Veterans
SYRACUSE, N.Y., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Bankers Healthcare Group, one the nation’s leading providers of financing solutions to healthcare professionals, has partnered with Team Red, White & Blue (RWB) to outfit wounded veterans with custom-fit exercise gear. Team RWB is a veteran support organization that encourages physical fitness and community interaction as a path to physical and emotional wellness for wounded soldiers as they transition from active duty to civilian life.
As part of an ongoing pledge, BHG has arranged to have participating veterans custom fit for running shoes and other exercise gear at Fleet Feet Sports, a running specialty store located in Syracuse. Team RWB encourages its veterans and volunteers to take part in endurance events such as marathons and triathlons to help raise awareness of the organization’s mission. The goal of the partnership is to get wounded veterans excited about physical fitness and help prevent injuries as they train.
Mark Erwin, Community Outreach Director for Team RWB, understands the importance of all-around community support. “We’re seeing more and more how beneficial getting in shape can be for soldiers trying to cope with both physical and emotional wounds,” Erwin said. “Having organizations like BHG that understand our mission and are willing to offer unique ideas and support is integral to our success.”
Eric Castro, Owner and COO of BHG, is honored to support such a noble cause. “Giving back to the community is very important to BHG, but we wanted to take it a step further and collaborate with Team RWB to find a unique way to give back to those who have sacrificed so much,” Castro said. “We’re hoping that our contribution will encourage wounded veterans to get out, get active and stay active.”
