Tim O’Donnell

The cause: Team Red, White & Blue, whose vision is to transform the way wounded veterans are reintegrated into society after combat through physical fitness and personal connections with people in their communities.

How he helps: After spending nine years in the Navy, O’Donnell was contacted to become an athlete ambassador and is now a member of the advisory board.

How you can help: Visit to become an athlete (race and train in RWB gear and spread the word) or an advocate (develop friendships with veterans).

“Without the support of the Navy I would not be where I am in triathlon today, and through RWB, I can use this opportunity in triathlon to give back to those who have valiantly served our country.”
