Team Red White & Blue is already becoming a force in the Special Olympics Texas volunteer ranks.

On March 22, 28 Team RWB members and more than 20 family members helped out at the 30th annual Kiwanis local track competition in Area 6. During the opening ceremonies of the competition, Team RWB members ran alongside athletes during the opening ceremonies.

On April 6, members of Team RWB volunteered and participated in Area 19 at the 9th Annual Sgt. Ruben Orozco 8K Race/Fun Run Walk. El Paso area team members are also planning to help at Area 19’s Spring Games in early May.

Thank you so much to these volunteers! We are excited to build our partnership with Team Red White and Blue.
