While volunteering, WAO 365 members enjoyed learning about the USO and were truly impressed by the work the organization accomplishes on a daily basis.

This month, RTNO’s Warriors at Work (WAW), a workforce development program for homeless veterans, received a generous pledge of support from the “We Are One 365” (WAO365) organization.

We Are One 365 is on a mission to remind America what we have forgotten. To instill in our communities what has so often been neglected. To remind ourselves and our communities that our freedom does not come without cost.
To show our gratitude and appreciation for the tremendous sacrifice the men and women in the United States military and their families make, we ask that you pledge support to join our organization. Pledge that when you run, walk, bike, and exercise, you will wear We Are One 365 apparel to raise awareness of the daily sacrifice made by our men and women in uniform and to express our appreciation and gratitude for all they have done and continue to do.
We Are One 365 facilitates running events in major cities, suburban, and rural communities. We intend to bring together groups of people from many different walks of life, all of whom are unified in their willingness to commit to completing a fitness event in honor of our military.
Fitness activities are a central component of We Are One 365 because they are also an integral part of serving in the military and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. These small sacrifices out of our own lives are but one means of expressing our gratitude for the enormous sacrifices made by our military and their families.
A 5k is planned for March 31, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. If you would like to plan a run in your city, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We Are One 365 holds events in major cities to raise awareness about the daily sacrifice made by our military and to honor soldiers, families, veterans, and those who have recently lost their lives.
The purpose of these social events is to bridge the gap between military families and military non-affiliated citizens and to remind our communities of the daily physical, mental, and emotional sacrifices made by members of the armed forces.
We Are One 365 sells athletic apparel in order to remind the individual who is wearing the gear that they are doing so in order to honor our service men and women by working out for them. All proceeds from apparel goes toward funding our organization.
We distribute our athletic gear at our events, runs, and online.
We Are One 365 will partners with athletic organizations in order to help promote our organization and our mission. Our partnership with these teams will help instill a culture of gratitude for our military and their families in college and high schoolcampuses and within our communities.
