Connecting America to Her Veterans

Be A Patriot with RBC this October

Run, walk, bike, hike, row and workout for America's veterans!

RBC Wealth Management branches are coming together February 2021  to get fit and raise funds for GallantFew’s premier veteran transition support programs and five national veteran service non-profits.

How it works.

Each participating RBC branch names a team leader. RBC team leaders form branch teams before Patriot Challenge starts on February 1. RBC branch associates, families and friends join their branch’s team during online registration open now.

During the month of February, RBC participants get fit logging miles from their workout routines and raise funds using their personalized Patriot Challenge dashboard. Each RBC branch team tracks their team’s rise up the Patriot Challenge mileage and fundraising leaderboards.

After RBC raises $1,000 and logs 565 collective miles, 50% of funds raised by the branches will be evenly divided among the (list five charities) and the remaining funds GallantFew will use for its veteran transition support programs.

RBC team participants use the hashtag #RBCEmployeeFamilyMember to share stories and photos on social media. RBC may use this content in any of its media to promote the event or any of its fundraising work.

Why PATRIOT CHALLENGE?

2021 marks the first year of PATRIOT CHALLENGE as the GallantFew’s annual veteran advocacy, community fitness, and fundraising event.  From 2012-20202, GallantFew hosted Run Ranger Run each February. To connect more of American to her veterans, PATRIOT CHALLENGE was developed to provide participants “skin in the game” – an opportunity to benefit from their fund raising efforts.

Beginning with registration on May 1, 2020, PATRIOT CHALLENGE participants form teams of 10, 20, and 50 or more to raise funds for GallantFew’s transition support programs and their own veteran/military support initiatives. After a team of at least 10 participants takes the SPARTAN PLEDGE, logs 565 miles, and raises $1,000 — the team will reach PATRIOT status. PATRIOT teams may receive up to 50% of the funds they receive after the initial $1,000 is raised for a pre-approved local or national initiative to connect America to her veterans.
